Another enjoyable book in this series by Upson: 4★s.
I hadn't heard of this author before, so I'm interested in seeing how the book pans out. One fifth of the way in and it's looking promising...

I've read 3 of her books since discovering this series in November last year. Not been disappointed by any of them, and look forward to getting to the rest of them.
A steady 3.5★s from start to finish. I managed to work out the identity of killer but that was no thanks to the author - very mean with the clues. Slightly disappointing, after a good start, but I will continue with the series.
'Long Time Coming' is a standalone, but anyone who has the time might also like to try out Goddard's James Maxted Series: The Ways of the World, The Corners of the Globe and The Ends of the Earth.
(The fourth book in the series, 'A Game of Zeros' is due out this year.)
I wouldn't know where to begin describing the story, suffice to say: if you read it, be prepared for a few surprises...
I gave it 4★s and will continue with the series.
A political thriller, topical in its time - oozing the atmosphere of its era. Dated? Perhaps... But it all depends on your outlook: I enjoyed it. 4.5★s from me.
Corry has a second novel out, but my local library doesn't have a copy (yet), I'm going to request they buy it - fingers crossed!
(Your profile lists your real name as Terry: do you prefer to be addressed as Terry, ted or ted74ca? My Librarything friends all refer to me as Sergei.)
We have some fun discussions: if you'd like a taster, when you get Seeking the Dead (book 1 in the series) you could check out the discussion we did for that - http://www.librarything.com/groups/bookdiscussionseekin
We read our book in sections, discussing it as we go rather than waiting 'til the end and forgetting half the plot! :)
I wonder how much longer Robinson can make the series last? 24 books is a lot... Banks must be getting close to retirement age by now.
If you keep reading the series, gypsysmom, you'll find that Banks's investigations do occasionally take him further afield.
As to his single status, the simple answer is divorce. Hope this doesn't spoil it for you if you read on in the series...

1955. Forensic pathologist Richard Pryor uses his 'golden handshake' to set up in private practice with scientist Angela Bray. A friendly coroner gives them a start, and when two women both claim that human remains found near a reservoir are their relatives, the dilemma is given to them to investigate. Written by a former Home Office pathologist, the story carries the stamp of forensic authenticity.
It seems to me that a lot of investigators in crime novels are single. Chief Inspector Gamache of Louise Penny's books is about the only one I can think of that has been happily married throughout. Do you think the "lone wolf" detective plays better to the reading audience?
(Your Touchstone for The Lewis Man brings up the wrong book, you might want to correct it.)
I hope you enjoy reading it, MegEynons.
This is my second outing with the series; staged around a successful group of players, I could easily feel myself transported to Shakespearean London. I shall happily continue with this series.
Police Constable Hamish Macbeth investigates a death in his quiet little lochside village in the Highlands of Scotland.
A Mystery and Suspense Group book discussion. 4.5★s from me.
Set in 1950s East Anglia, England. An unusual writing style that is growing on me, now I've got used to the quirks. 4★s.
(Also published as "Debt of Dishonor".)
I'd recommend giving the series a try. First in the series is Natural Causes. Ideal time of year to check it out, perhaps?
I will certainly be reading more by this author.
