Robin sinks to delicious new lows in this instalment. I enjoy characters with gall, and this guy has it by the spade. It was great seeing more of King Richard too, and I adored the strange friendship between him and Alan.

“It's true: lives do drift apart for no obvious reason. We're all busy people,we can't spend our time simply trying to stay in touch. The test of a friendship is if it can weather these inevitable gaps.”
William Boyd, Any Human Heart

Kate Griffin, The Midnight Mayor
