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.
