Peter Robinson's book the Strange Affair is a book that I have had on my shelf for quite some time, as I was not sure if I wanted to read it. It is about the death of DCI Alan Banks brother, and how investigates the murder.
Anyway I did read it and whilst I did not really enjoy the subject matter, it was a good book to read.
The story line was directly related to Alan's investigation, whilst at the same time a parallel and overlapping investigation was going on by DI Annie Cabbot.
Of course eventually the two lines of investigation overlap, moving away from Yorkshire back down to the south and London, but they remain only from the two police officers perspective, highlighting the frustration through lack of knowledge as to what is going on.
The story ends with an horrific truth, which Alan uncovers and realises that this is the real reason why his brother was killed. I can't say that this was an enjoyable book due to the subject matter but it was a good book.

I love freebies, especially useful ones.
As such we offer a monthly series of freebies that are hopefully useful and inspire. These are a series of wallpapers for the laptop, phone and desktop. This is the story behind this months wallpaper.
October 2012 Wallpaper
The other day I was driving along the road leading to Greenhaugh in Northumberland National Park. As this is not a road I often drive along I was on the look out for anything worth snapping. This old gate caught my eye. There is almost more string holding it together than anything else. The state of the field that it was meant to be an entrance to was not much better than the gate.
We thought it would make a good wallpaper this month.
