Found in the well stocked bookcase of the Auberge bressane de Buellas where I had lunch.

A wedding massacre, a too obvious culprit... this is one of the later in the Banks series; I must have seen too many episodes on TV because I am confused by the differences in the characters - no mention here of Annie Cabbot's baby or Helen, and Banks's parents are both alive and in a residence. The setting is as good (and familiar to me) as ever, there is a lot of music - an introduction to Alice Coote - and a lot of good food that has made me hungry for korma and freshly baked naans.

Thank you, danke, merci, grazie - Over-the-Moon! I just finished my "airplane" read (Robinson) and really look forward to this companion on the way home. (The flight is an extra hour! Headwinds apparently...)
'Great to see you at the Mainz convention.

'Finished this one. Again, thanks so much Over-the-moon for bringing this to Mainz - very thoughtful of you. Another page-turner. Next up: "Caedmon's Song" (hard cover picked up from the book buffet). I am jumping from 2017 back to 1990, but I don't mind. "Caedmon's Song" is also known as "The First Cut" in North American. (Dunno why...they also changed Canadian author Lawrence Hill's "The Book of Negroes" to "Someone Knows my Name" for the US market.) I will take this Robinson to our meetup on May 11th.

This was such a slog to get through. Granted, this was my first Inspector Banks book and it probably doesn't help starting at book 24. I had no understanding of who the characters are. I thought Banks was living with his lover, but apparently it's just a friend. Not understanding the characters and having SO MUCH FILLER in this book really didn't help. I ended up skimming so much of the book because nothing was happening and it wasn't driving plot at all. The ending was also disappointing and rather quick.
Why frame someone for the murder if you're just going to try and kill the person you were after the whole time anyways? That part made no sense.
Don't think I'll be reading anymore books from Robinson.

Sorry, HoserLauren that you didn't like the book. Maybe that wasn't a good one to start with. I think you would enjoy "In a Dry Season" a lot more. Also, "The Summer that Never Was" - really good. That was my first Robinson. (He lives in Oakville, Ontario now.)
