Please, no more books about screwed up families. No more trawling through memories and family gossip. It's getting a little boring. Please write some more police procedurals, bring back Charlie Peace and Perry Trethowen, much more interesting people than those soulless types you've been writing about lately. Remember "Bodies?" Remember "Death in a Cold Climate?" You are my favorite writer. You have gone too far in this direction, let's get back to some more compelling characters, more interesting stories, people we can like or dislike. I get the feeling the people in all your most recent books are just humorless, passionless sorts digging around through the past because it's mildly intriguing, but they have nothing that speaks to me like your earlier characters.

Robert Barnard's unique sense of suspense always pleases me. His approach is almost Hitchcockian, just a quiet story of people and their ups and downs, but with a surprise waiting.

I'm afraid Robert Barnard has lost a few steps. Reviews for this book were fairly positive, but it certainly wasn't "a novel of suspense." The "mystery" was so easy to figure out that there wasn't much point in finishing the book--at least it was very short. The writing is competent but not gripping or descriptive--we barely get a sense of the locations in the story. It wasn't a "psychological thriller," as no thrills were involved; the characters were so flat that it was hard to sustain an interest. Even the protagonist, Kit, seems unsurprised by any of the novel's events. His search for his "real" family leads to no interesting or even firm conclusions. The best I can say for this novel is that it is a narrative--it starts at the beginning, goes on until it reaches the end, and then stops.

I've long been a Robert Barnard fan, and I was keen to read a mystery centered on the Kindertransport, but, alas, this didn't hold my interest (or attention). And characters, plot devices and premises just didn't ring true.
Not his usual wonderful read. Barnard was always a reliable mystery writer with lots of surprises and unusual endings. Not this time. Very predictable and trite.
