Ok, much better than the first two books so this one truly deserves a 4 star rating. I went back and downgraded the first two to 3 stars to be fair. The story was evenly paced throughout the book this time and the ending didn't feel extemporaneous. Peter's character was balanced with more of the supporting characters this time out and I was pleased to see DCI Nightingale taking a more active role again. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
