Revue de presse

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

It's neither the setting nor even the characters that makes Robinson's work so satisfying, but the plotting of Swiss-watch precision (Independent)

Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation (Observer)

As always with the excellent DCI Alan Banks novels, you can expect the story to grip you from beginning to end. (Choice)

A real page-turner that confirms Robinson as a master of crime fiction. (Bella Magazine)

It's always cause for celebration when a new Peter Robinson arrives, and this latest Inspector Banks is wonderful. Brilliantly plotted, beautifully paced, it gathers speed and dread until I could barely stand it. Peter Robinson writes with compassion, with depth, with the assurance of a writer at the top of his game and rewards us with a truly heart-pounding finale. All who adore great writing, and Inspector Banks, will find this a thrilling read. (Louise Penny, author of THE LONG WAY HOME)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Two missing boys.

A stolen bolt gun.

One fatal shot.

Three ingredients for murder.

When DCI Banks and his team are called to investigate the theft of a tractor from a North Yorkshire village, they're far from enthusiastic about what seems to be a simple case of rural crime. Then a blood stain is found in an abandoned hangar, two main suspects vanish without a trace, and events take a darkly sinister turn.

As each lead does little to unravel the mystery, Banks feels like the case is coming to a dead end. Until a road accident reveals some alarming evidence, which throws the investigation to a frightening new level.

Someone is trying to cover their tracks - someone with very deadly intent . . .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Keeping Alan Banks busy... 8 août 2014
Par Jill Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Is there less crime in a rural area than in an urban area? Is London the "wicked big city" with murders and other crimes committed more than in other areas of England? Or does the area of North Yorkshire, both rural and urban, provide enough crime to keep DCI Alan Banks and his police crew busy? It sure seems so in British writer Peter Robinson's latest DCI Banks mystery, "Abattoir Blues".

Peter Robinson's series is a mix of police procedural and psychological study. The police officers - Alan Banks, Annie Cabbot, and Winsome Jackman, among others - are a team that appear in Robinson's books. He looks at the personal lives of these public people and in each book, Robinson advances their lives as he writes about the crimes they solve. It's nice for a reader to "check in" with characters he's followed for many years now and through many books.

"Abattoir Blues" is the story of rural crime. A tractor is stolen from a vacationing farmer's barn and, along the way, people are murdered. An accident of a truck carrying animal remains turns particularly gruesome when human remains are found at the accident site. Good police work ties the stolen tractor in with the murder and as people are questioned, the criminal circle widens. DCI Banks and his team do their duty and give the reader a look at both crimes and criminals AND at the lives of those charged with solving those crimes.

This book is the 20-something in the DCI Banks series. It's not available in the United States; I had to order the book from Amazon/UK. The book is very good, but not the best of the series. For the Peter Robinson fan, "Abattoir Blues" is must-reading. But for the new Robinson reader, I'd advise beginning with an earlier book in the series.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but ...... 7 août 2014
Par Mike Woenig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Another good story about Inspector Banks and his team, even though the ending was somewhat predictable, but after 22 books about Banks, I suppose that's a given. However a little advice to Peter - start thinking outside the square for Banks' next adventure, its getting a little too much of the same. I'd hate to think you will be like a number of other authors who have made it and start to churn out pulp fiction because you think you have a captive audience. Believe me, I have stopped reading their latest "best sellers" because they are just a waste of time and money, I'm sure many others are the same.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Meandering paragraphs on abattoir workings and other topics that just seemed like fillers. Virtually no character development wh 25 novembre 2014

Very, very disappointing book. Meandering paragraphs on abattoir workings and other topics that just seemed like fillers. Virtually no character development which is always a plus especially in Inspector Bsnks books. The story is all right but I had to force myself to finish this book. Hopefully this is just a blip for Ribinson and he will return to his more interesting and integrated books.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Crime Mystery 18 août 2014
Par jon robards - Publié sur Amazon.com

A very welcome return of DCI Banks in another top class crime mystery. This time Banks seems to almost play second fiddle to Annie Cabbot , Winsome and the other interesting characters in the detective group- but this is not a bad thing. The story rolls along in Mr Robinson's comfortable and seamless style....the characters well developed so we like or dislike them as no doubt is intended. The plots and subplots had me anxiously wanting to keep reading . I did miss the 'Banks of old' with his classical music fixation and emotional issues with kids, ex-wife, brother, etc. Realistically Banks is ageing and his reminiscing about his love-life (or lack of) was a tad uncomfortable for me. This is after all the 22nd book so the series must end soon.....but not before the 23rd please Mr Robinson.

Par prisrob - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Abattoir: French, from abattre to fell
A slaughterhouse, abattoir i/ˈæbətwɑr/ or meatworks is a facility where animals are killed for consumption as food. Slaughterhouses that process meat not intended for human consumption are sometimes referred to as knacker's yards or knackeries." Wiki

We find DCI Banks returning from a vacation with a new love, Oriana. Everyone in the station seems to know about his love life, DI Annie Cabbot, DC Doug Wilson, DS Winsome Jackman, and DC Gerry Masterson. We know many of them from prior books, but now we get to know them a little better, professionally and personally. An exArmy man has found what he thinks is blood in an old abandoned hangar, and what at first glance looks like human blood turns into a crime scene. This is a very original storyline. I don't think I have ever read about abattoirs and animal stun guns, and I found it fascinating if not gruesome at times. DI Cabbot is a vegetarian and after this case, I wonder if others turn off from meat, also.

This is the 22nd DCI Banks book, and the author, Peter Robinson has written a remarkable novel. Not the best, but quite acceptable and kept my interest. I think the author has a real knack for crime stories and his knowledge and research into this area certainly shows in his novels. I found several instances of sexist behavior and discussion between Banks and his colleague, Burgess were off putting, but that must be their behavior off hours. A lot of wine is consumed with this criminal team, but it seems to go with the society in which we live. The countryside surrounding North Yorkshire can be bleak and cold, and that comes through loud and clear in the storyline. Some of the murders in this case were brutal, but to prove a point they were well written. It would be nice to see Banks happy and content in a relationship, but as we know his job will always be his first love.
