A Necessary End by Peter Robinson (audiobook)

A Necessary End (Inspector Banks #3) - James Langton, Peter   Robinson

Series: Inspector Banks #3


I'm reading this series out of order (I read book 3 before book 2) because of library availability and because I was looking for something written by a man that I could finish relatively quickly for the Snakes & Ladders game.


I have to say that I really enjoyed the narration (although it seems like the last second or so was cut off from several chapters) and the mystery was interesting enough to keep me guessing. It was also weird reading about everyone smoking and using their cigarette lighters to actually light their cigarettes rather than to charge their iphones (it was published in 1988). It made me realize that it's been many, many years since I've even seen an ashtray. 


Anyway, now book 2 has become available so I'll probably continue with that.
