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 . . .

One of the best police procedurals around

I had been eagerly awaiting the new book and wasn’t let down. The story focuses on two crimes, one current & one historical. Annie & Banks investigate separately & Winsome & Gerry support them. I read it one lazy Saturday in, almost, one sitting.

Well up to Robinson’s usual standard!

Got this last week. Have just finished reading it. For any fans of Peter Robinson’s novels, this one does not disappoint. Anyone who has read any “Banks” books will know exactly what I mean. I will not give the plot away, except that Peter Robinson is a good writer, and this does not let you down. It is also very much up to date. One gets the mention of Pop Music Tracks which I can relate to. Being a 55 year old Yorkshireman also means I can relate to the scenery and weather in Yorkshire.

If you liked the first 22

If you liked the first 22, you’ll like this one. People have commented about the self-indulgent references to music, but that has always been the case with Peter Robinson’s whodunits, and might actually set us off tracking down new musical experiences ourselves. The book is as tightly written and engaging as ever. Go for it.

I always enjoy Robinson and this was no exception. I have one caveat with this book because while Robinson always gives you the feel of the Dales and could be read for many years afterwards, I felt that this book demands much current knowledge of events, which may spoili for those without UK knowledge, especially in years to come.

Another excellent story

Another excellent story from Peter Robinson. Despite a lot of negative reviews here regarding this book, I enjoyed it, a stonking good read in the usual Banks vein. Don’t be put off by the bad reviews, this book is as good as the previous ones.

Superintendent Banks (23)

Up to the minute topical, accurate and depressingly realistic story line . Not sure if TV producers will dare to make a version of this novel. Very good read and very insightful of how restricted the police are in their fight against crime.
