I want to like
these books more than I do, but I find something lacking. Peter Robinson's Strange Affair is certainly a good-quality police procedural, but I just can't really get into his characters, so the decent writing feels mostly for naught. I always secretly mix him up with Reginald Hill anyway, Alan Banks and Peter Pascoe seem virtually interchangeable. Anyway, surely this is a failure of sensibility on my part, everyone I know who reads this kind of book likes them a ton.
