When DCI Alan Banks arrived in Eastvale his life was every bit as much of a mess as it is now. But he is holding an envelope that could change everything he understood about the events that sent him north twenty years ago. Walking again the narrow alleys and backstreets of his mind, he remembers the seedy Soho nights of his last case - dubious businessmen in dodgy clubs, young girls on the game. And a killer on the loose.

In addition to the brand new novella that fills in the gaps in Banks's life before Yorkshire, Peter Robinson gives us ten more brilliant and eclectic stories that have never before been published in the UK.

The Eastvale Ladies' Poker Circle finds that murder may be just another game of risk. Is a suitcase of cash worth a man's head on a plate? And tragedy leads a young boy to learn the price of love . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Outstanding . . . one of the best voices in contemporary fiction * Publishers Weekly *
After 18 tales of the fiendishly good DCI Alan Banks, the bestselling author delves into his leading man's past * Shortlist *
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market * Stephen King *
Robinson once again puts his skills to work in a police procedural that grips like pliers * Independent on Sunday *
'A must for Robinson completists, of course, but also for anyone who appreciates good stories well told.' * Globe and Mail, Canada *
'Peter Robinson has for too long, and unfairly, been in the shadow of Ian Rankin . . . [he deserves a place] near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league' * The Times *
A police procedural that grips like pliers * Independent on Sunday on FRIEND OF THE DEVIL *

“A great little collection!”

I really enjoyed this collection of ten short stories and a novella.

All of the stories have their very different twists and turns, and there is a good variety of unexpected endings. Some of the stories are fillers... More
