A book club member says: It is clear why John Banville uses the pen name Benjamin Black for his mysteries. He let himself off the hook and doesn't maintain the quality he's known for. It's not the genre that makes it a lesser work - it's the lack of attention to structure. For example, he devotes the first 150 pages or so to introducing characters before anything happens.
