It’s a Mystery: All the Colors of Darkness, by Peter Robinson

5.0 out of 5 stars It’s a new world

Peter Robinson has developed one of the genre’s most appealing investigators in Alan Banks. He’s lived a lot, learned from his experiences and mistakes, and remains ineffably real and humane. Bank’s has a lot on his plate in Colors of Darkness. Just as he seems to have found genuine happiness with Sophia, he finds himself immersed in a case that’s patently straightforward, but his instincts keep telling him that how deceiving are appearances. The Cold War is over, but now its replacement, the ever-present terrorism threat, has grown even more complex and perilous, and Banks is unnervingly unsure of the rules.

All the Colors of Darkness is an expertly crafted, knotty mystery, with elements of darkness, as well as plenty of zigs, zags, and human interest. Highly recommended.

    Well, this one’s probably not for me. I do love books (and better yet, series) about investigators, but I’m generally not keen on books about terrorism. I will look for something else in the series, though. Good review.
