Banks isn't back, and that's the problem.

If DCI Alan Banks had been in his office when his old neighbour came calling, perhaps it would have turned out differently.

Perhaps an innocent man would still be alive.

And perhaps Banks's daughter wouldn't be on the run with a wanted man.

But Banks is on holiday, blissfully unaware of the terrible chain of events set in motion by the discovery of a loaded gun in a young woman's bedroom, and his daughter's involvement with the ultimate bad boy . . .

Brilliant! . . . Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure - Jeffery Deaver

Typically well written and compelling but I get the nagging feeling that I have seen this plot line somewhere else - copper's daughter goes off unwittingly with criminal etc. Has it been televised already? Just... More

“So-so, this series is going downhill”

This next book in the Inspector Banks series was eagerly awaited after the short stories book which I found very disappointing. Unfortunately, Bad Boy hasn't really lived up to expectation. Slightly... More
