THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

In a remote countryside lane in North Yorkshire, the body of a young girl is found, bruised and beaten, having apparently been thrown from a moving vehicle.

While DI Annie Cabbot investigates the circumstances in which a 15-year-old could possibly fall victim to such a crime, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Alan Banks is faced with a similar task – but the case Banks must investigate is as cold as they come.

Fifty years ago Linda Palmer was attacked by celebrity entertainer Danny Caxton, yet no investigation ever took place. Now Caxton stands accused at the centre of a historical abuse investigation and it's Banks's first task as superintendent to find out the truth.

While Annie struggles with a controversial case threatening to cause uproar in the local community, Banks must piece together decades-old evidence, and as each steps closer to uncovering the truth, they'll unearth secrets much darker than they ever could have guessed . . .

A Good Book

 on 10 January 2018
By Barb Dee
There were two topical stories running through this book which I found difficult to read but at the same time I couldn’t put the book down. Banks has been promoted but was put in charge of an investigation into historical sex abuse against children back in the 60s with the help of DS Winsome Jackman. He also had to oversee another case of child grooming and under aged sex between young girls and some members of the Pakistani community. DI Annie Cabbot had the day to day running of the grooming case with DC Geraldine Masterton. When the body of a young girl is found naked on a lonely country road Annie and Geraldine pull out all the stops to find out what happened to her. I found the book thought provoking and touching at the same time.

Peter Robinson is just getting better and better. Banks is too.

His best yet

An excellent whodunnit! Really up to date with grooming of white teenage girls and a Jimmy Saville type investigation into a celebrity raping young girls with the protection of high up police officers. Gruelling stuff but, as ever, sensitively dealt with by DS Banks.

Always enjoy the Banks books especially this one as the sixties …

Dark but intriguing subject matter, kept my interest to the conclusion. Always enjoy the Banks books especially this one as the sixties were my era & are very well described in the earlier crime.

A great read

A really good read, possibly the best Banks book I have read. The topical issues of child abuse, grooming and racism are sensitively handled.

This book deals with a very emotive issue with sensitivity in an adult manner but with a youngsters viewpoint too.
