The twenty-first novel in Number One bestselling author Peter Robinson's critically acclaimed DCI Banks series.

Ex-college lecturer Gavin Miller is found dead; his distorted body strewn across a disused railway track near his home. There's no sign of a struggle, and no concrete evidence except for one distinguishing package: £5,000 of cash, tucked inside the man's pocket.

But when DCI Banks delves into Miller's past, he uncovers a troubled existence tarnished by accusations of abuse and misconduct which throws up an array of puzzling questions.

What really occurred at the college where the victim used to teach?

How was he embroiled in political activism at Essex University, over forty years ago?

And what links him to an upstanding pillar of the community, who also harbours a dark secret from her past?

One thing is clear: someone will stop at nothing - even murder - to prevent Banks from discovering the truth . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market - Stephen King

Robinson's gift for realistic characterisation is matched by an authentically realised sense of place; landscape is a crucial element in his work - Good Book Guide

A wonderful, well-written plot with a great twist and strong characters . . . a page-turning read - Woman's Way

Peter Robinson deserves a place near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league - The Times

A wonderful, well-written plot with a great twist and strong characters and there's even romance on the cards for Banks too. A page-turning read for both fans of Robinson and Banks and readers who really enjoy a good crime-thriller. - Woman's Way

Classic Robinson: a labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation - Observer

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

Detective Chief Inspector Banks, the artsy and melancholic Yorkshire detective, and his snarky sidekick, Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot, are consistently fun to watch . . . As usual with a Banks novel, the chief inspector's frictions with higher-ups are nearly as gripping as the unraveling of the case itself. First-rate procedural and character study . . . this is one of the series' highlights. - Starred Review, Booklist

Robinson's gift for realistic characterisation is matched by an authentically realised sense of place; landscape is a crucial element in his work. The Alan Banks books have won many awards over the years including the Arthur Ellis award for best crime novel for Past Reason Hated and the Anthony Award for In a Dry Season; Children of the Revolution is a solid entry. - Good Book Guide

“Back to Banks at His Best”

I do really like Peter Robinson's books and whilst I do enjoy the stand alone books it is the Banks I like best so was very pleased to get my copy of this latest one.
I won't give any of the plot away but... More
