I really like this series but this was not a good book. There were three story lines that added a considerable amount of filler. First Banks attended a funeral for his first love and that story went on and on through the entire book. As well Jenny Fuller returned, another lost love. Then there was the weather. As in previous books the rain and flooding in Eastvale played a part in the story. Then there was the excessive amount of music references that have expanded from Classical to include Jazz and Rock plus there is now poetry as well. Finally there was the mass shooting, the hunt and conclusion. Without all the added stuff this story would probably be a novelette. An average novelette.
