In Eastvale, a young Middle Eastern boy is found dead, his body stuffed in a wheelbarrow on the East Side Estate. Detective Superintendent Banks and his team know they must tread carefully to solve this sensitive case. But tensions rise when they learn that the victim was stabbed somewhere else and dumped. Who is the boy, and where did he come from? Then, in a decayed area of Eastvale scheduled for redevelopment, a heroin addict is found dead. Was this just another tragic overdose or something darker? To prevent tensions from reaching a boiling point, Banks must find answers quickly. Yet just when he needs to be his sharpest, the seasoned detective finds himself distracted by a close friend's increasingly precarious situation. He needs a break--and gets one when he finds a connection to a real estate developer that could be key to finding the truth. With so many loose ends dangling, there is one thing Banks is sure of--solving the case may come at a terrible cost.--

This was my first of this series and will be the last. Many Rivers to Cross was just one too many river for me.

The text is overwritten, plodding and pedantic. I started screaming (silently) at my iPod when characters talked ENNNNNNDlessly about books and cuisine, topics which should be fun. Where was the British subtlety and humor?

And the plot. What can I say about the plot? That it's thin. Predictable. Hopelessly and annoyingly embedded with the storylines streaming with the rest of the rivers I guess, from #25 to #27? And not in a good, cliffhanging, I-want-to-read-all-these-books-now sort of way. No-- in a if-there-was-not-a-shelter-in-place-going-on-now-I-would-not-bother-finishing-this sort of way.

Even the legendary actor Simon Prebble sounded dispirited and underwhelmed.
