The plot revolves around two different crimes - the peeping Tom and a murder (or is it a series of crimes?) At times, Robinson leads us to believe that they might be connected. And when Bank's wife becomes a victim, the action really picks up. The York setting is pleasant, but very much in the background. All in all, this series looks like one that has potential to catch and hold a reader's attention for at least 2 or 3 more books, without causing lack of sleep or great anxiety. The series currently has over 20 volumes, so if I go for the whole set, I think I'll be reading these for awhile. I have the 2nd one primed to listen to in audio later this month, and will let you know if it lives up to expectations.
