3.0 out of 5 stars Banks goes to Estonia, 13 May 2013
This review is from: Watching the Dark: The 20th DCI Banks Mystery (Inspector Banks 20) (Hardcover)
Had I looked carefully at the plot for this novel I may not have chosen it despite being an enormous fan of this series. Illegal immigrants, abuse of workers and trafficking doesn't appeal. However the rather labyrinthine plot was cleverly crafted. That said it was not as engaging as the previous nineteen Banks' novels. Too long, at times ponderous, and my patience was tested. I was pleased to finish it. The introduction of Joanna Passero was a mixed blessing. She seemed to bring out the worst in Banks and she wasn't full of charm herself. Annie was as gripping as ever and I hope she and Banks return as a team in future. Not Robinson's best for me.
