I absolutely love the Bishop SCU series - and this one was eagerly awaited. Quentin (who we have met before); is researching a crime which happened during his childhood and one which he has deep connections too. Along comes Diana - she is more deeply connected to the crime and to the strange happenings at the lodge - therein lies the link between them. Although I enjoyed this book it did not seem to have the punch, no real involvement from other members of the 'team' in this one (a brief cameo from Beau, which was, dare I say a little contrived) and I missed the banter and chance to visit 'old' friends along the way. Worth a read, but not if you have not read any of the series before, the earlier ones are much better and I don't feel this one would give a true reading of just how powerful and engrossing Ms Hooper's book are as a rule.
