Caedmon’s Song by Peter Robinson

Caedmon's Song5 Stars from me!

I loved Caedmon’s Song, it was fabulous from beginning to end.

Such a pleasure to read an artfully constructed story which doesn’t disappoint. The end of Caedmon’s song is just as riveting as the beginning and it keeps you hooked all the way through.

The turnabout from standard police procedural was very clever too, the police make only the tiniest of appearances throughout the story leaving the main characters capture your attention.

This really is a refreshing and engaging read and I heartily recommend it, although I suspect it may appeal more to women than men.

The quote on the front cover says ‘it would be easy to become addicted to Robinson‘ and I have to say I quite agree.

Synopsis: A psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling Inspector Banks series.

On a balmy June night, Kirsten, a young university student, strolls home through a silent, moonlit park. Suddenly her tranquil mood is shattered as she is viciously attacked.

When she awakes in hospital, she has no recollection of that brutal night. But then, slowly and painfully, details reveal themselves – dreams of two figures, one white and one black, hovering over her; wisps of a strange song; the unfamiliar texture of a rough and deadly hand…

In another part of England, Martha Browne arrives in Whitby, posing as an author doing research for a book. But her research is of a particularly macabre variety. Who is she hunting with such deadly determination? And why?
