The latest police procedural featuring Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Inspector Annie Cabbott is set in the fictional town of Eastvale in Yorkshire. With style and finesse Simon Prebble narrates the intriguing character-driven story, which involves a homosexual relationship, international terrorism that brings in both MI5 and MI6, and murder. Prebble uses subtle vocal changes to identify the large cast of characters and warmly delivers the descriptions of beautiful scenery, historic buildings, and English weather. Robinson and Prebble keep the listener engaged with the novel’s complex themes. A further pleasure is the surprise ending. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
