who appears to be liked by everyone and had no enemies
on May 11, 2016
I'd rate this book a 3 -3 1/2 star read. The second in Robinson's Inspector Banks series, this was a slow moving almost old fashioned mystery. Set in the small Dales area of Swainsdale, Banks is called in to investigate the murder of a retired scholar, who appears to be liked by everyone and had no enemies. Trying to find out who wished the dead man ill, Banks slowly unfolds the real stories in the village and eventually discovers the real story and motive and killer.
