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 . . .
