Revue de presse

The Inspector Banks novels have received numerous awards for their crisp narratives, breath-taking action, and atmospheric settings (The Tuscon Citizen )

Présentation de l'éditeur

One of the premier masters of modern British crime, New York Times bestselling author Peter Robinson brings back Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks and his colleague DI Annie Cabbot in a complex case involving corruption, a dead cop, and a missing girl

Watching the Dark

A decorated detective inspector is murdered on the tranquil grounds of the St. Peter's Police Treatment Centre, shot through the heart with a crossbow arrow, and compromising photographs are discovered in his room. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is well aware that he must handle the highly sensitive—and dangerously explosive—investigation with the utmost discretion.

Because the case may involve police corruption, an officer from Professional Standards, Inspector Joanna Passero, has arrived to work with Banks and his team. Though he tries to keep an open mind and offer his full cooperation, the dedicated Banks and his practical investigative style clash with Passero's cool demeanor and by-the- book professionalism. All too soon, the seasoned detective finds himself under uncomfortable scrutiny, his methods second-guessed.

As Banks digs deeper into the life and career of the victim, a decorated cop and recent widower named Bill Quinn, he comes to believe that Quinn's murder may be linked to an unsolved missing persons case. Six years earlier, a pretty nineteen-year-old English girl named Rachel Hewitt made national headlines when she disappeared without a trace in Tallinn, Estonia. Convinced that finding the truth about Rachel will lead to Quinn's killer, Banks follows a twisting trail of clues that lead from England to the dark, cobbled alleys of Tallinn's Old Town. But the closer he seems to solving the complicated cold case, the more it becomes clear that someone doesn't want the past stirred up.

While Banks prowls the streets of Tallinn, DI Annie Cabbot, recovered from her near-fatal shooting and back at the station in Eastvale, is investigating a migrant labor scam involving corrupt bureaucrats and a loan shark who feeds on the poor. As evidence in each investigation mounts, Banks realizes the two are linked—and that solving them may put even more lives, including his own, in jeopardy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A TOPNOTCH THRILLER 15 janvier 2013
Life is never easy for Detective Chief Inspector Allen Banks, and it becomes even more complex when he’s called to investigate the murder of Detective Inspector Bill Quinn. Not only was Quinn’s death mysterious ( it took place on the grounds of a peaceful police treatment center) but Quinn was one of their own making catching his killer all the more important to Banks. Further an old crime still lingers in his mind - the disappearance of Rachel Hewitt, a young girl who apparently vanished one night in Tallinn, Estonia, some six years earlier. Surely there’s no connection between the two but Banks has a hunch and for him a hunch is like an itch that must be scratched.

When some compromising photos are found in Quinn’s room the question of police corruption arises and Professional Standards becomes involved. Representing that department is Inspector Joanna Passero who quickly becomes a thorn in Banks’s side - albeit an extremely attractive one. He tries his best not to have her always beside him as he prefers working alone but, after all, could Quinn have possibly been a “bent cop”?

When another killing occurs the case very much looks like a giant jigsaw puzzle with minuscule pieces that must be laboriously put together. Just as one question is answered another arises.

However, the more Banks ponders what little evidence they have the more he becomes convinced that in order to find Quinn’s killer he must first find out what happened to Rachel. Passero could not agree with him less. Nonetheless, the two journey to Tallinn, Estonia to see what they can find out there. For this reader the time in Tallinn is one of the book’s best parts - it’s alive with descriptions of that dark old city and its inhabitants.

Encore une fois, DCI Banks mène l'enquête dans le Yorkshire, mais cette fois-ci les meurtres mystérieux le conduisent sur les moors sauvages avant de nous faire voyager jusqu'en Estonie. L'intrigue est bien ficelée, notre héros fidèle à lui-même et les paysages et les personnages sonnent vrai.
