Details Of Book : A Death in Summer Book: A Death in Summer Author:Benjamin Black ISBN:0330509152 ISBN-13:9780330509152 Binding:Paperback Publishing Date:2012-06-07 Publisher:Macmillan Number of Pages:336 Language:English A Death in Summer Reviews: Keith Staskiewicz: Black’s previous novel, Elegy for April, was an impressive disappearing act of a mystery, akin to pulling a rabbit out of a hat and then revealing that there actually was no hat after all. A Death in the Summer, his latest featuring the pathologist-turned-crime solver Quirke, is somewhat less magical. The prose sparkles as always both Black and his true identity, the more respectable John Banville, very rarely have a word out of place. But this time out, the lyrical sleight of hand can’t mask the lazily turning plot mechanics in which the murder that’s ostensibly driving the story the suspicious shotgun suicide of a Dublin newspaper tycoon .es off as strangely incidental. It’s still a good show, but there appears to be much more misdirection than real direction.
