Books I’ve Read: Caedmon’s Song
When you have read all of Peter Robinson’s Inspector Banks novels, the next logical step is to read Caedmon’s Song. This is a fairly hard hitting story which uses the thriller genre to explore some difficult issues. Like many of the Banks books, it has two intertwining threads which are slowly drawn together as the book progresses. If the narrative is a little more transparent than some of Robinson’s other work, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, if you are looking for a “whodunnit”, this isn’t the book to read.
It isn’t Robinson’s best book by a long way, but it is a gripping, well put together thriller and well worth a read (just read the others first). It is available on Kindle if you prefer your books in electronic format.
