There has been a twenty year gap between books two and three in the Power and Lynch series! I knew that book three would start with the image of an empty boat drifting on the water, and that the title with be The Good Shepherd, and that was where the books started and ended. Then, on a flight to to the USA, with no entertainment system and a whole seven hours of silence to just think in, the entire plot came to me. So I guess the answer is concentrated thinking time!(less)

"Haunted Past

This story starts off slowly and continues to build. It's like a puzzle; everyone has a secret, you just can't guess what it is. It's a good mix of police procedure, psychiatry, and a touch of horror. (I won this from Goodreads.)" Read more of this review »

Great fun to re-enter the world of Thomas Cromwell. I had been so looking forward to this book, but think the third instalment was not quite as good as the first two in the trilogy. Some pruning would have improved the text I think.

“Dr Power stood up. “Because your staff are not components that can be fitted in, or replaced when they are unpredictable, or when they are simply being human. Because our patients are not playing a game called ‘business’ with profit and loss and winners and losers. Because patients have no choice, but to be patients and it’s our privilege to be in a temporary position where we can help them. And, inevitably, when we ourselves fall ill; when we grow old, then we can only hope that we will receive the help we ourselves need in turn. Because that’s the reality of life. And not some self-aggrandising game". - Dr Power, speaking in The Good Shepherd”
