Mystery & Suspense • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

This police procedural is one in a series about Yorkshire's Inspector Banks. Banks cuts short his vacation when the remains of a childhood chum, missing since the '60s, turn up in his hometown. Coincidentally, a sensitive, artistic teen goes missing nearby and also winds up dead. The melancholy Banks helps the lady copper investigating the former crime, and they begin an affair. He also helps a second female detective probing the latter crime, who is his former mistress. When the three aren't on the job, they do a lot of internal hand-wringing over their love lives. Narrator Ron Keith has that aristocratically British sound of a man with a stuffed-up nose. He reads accurately and really sinks his teeth into impersonating the characters. But his voices are cartoony, and his choices cheap and superficial. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
