Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

The inhabitants of Robinson's Yorkshire are a far cry from James Herriot's sturdy farmers. In this literate mystery, Chief Inspector Alan Banks must deal with the vicious stabbing death of a young lesbian in a room illuminated by the light of a crackling fire and a Christmas tree, the murder by starvation of an incestuous old lecher, the slashing to ribbons of a Twelfth Night cast's costumes and the near-fatal strangulation of his newest detective constable, Susan Gay. Banks, seen last in The Hanging Valley, subjects all potential suspects--including past and present spouses and lovers, a group of amateur thespians and members of the police force--to an extended (perhaps too extended) psychological investigation. The puzzle's grip is weakened by some unconvincing red herrings and the detectives' lengthy musings; nevertheless, Robinson, a Toronto resident and winner of the Crime Writers of Canada Best Novel award, creates an appealing Yorkshire setting with evocative descriptions of the wintry town, dales and seaside.

Je ne connaissais pas Peter Robinson et ce sont des polars à lecture compulsive. La trame est intéressante et les descriptions du Yorshire apportent un peu d'originalté.

Se lit facilement. La ténacité de Banks fait encore effet ainsi que son instinct et montre un fois de plus qu'il ne faut pas se fier aux apparences.

HASH(0x951d1cd8) étoiles sur 5 A murder mystery with a difference. 11 avril 2001
Par E. Bukowsky - Publié sur
Format: Poche
"Past Reason Hated," by Peter Robinson, differs from the run-of-the-mill murder mystery. Inspector Banks, who is the sleuth in this series, is always fascinating. He is a chain smoker who enjoys drinking. He loves classical music, although he is not overly intellectual. Banks truly shines in his ability to communicate with suspects in a murder investigation. Banks is the best interviewer in the business. He has unerring intuition when it comes to spotting lies and evasions, and he has a way of getting people to reveal a great deal of themselves. Most of all, he cares about seeing justice done, no matter how long it takes and no matter whom it may hurt. In this novel, a young amateur actress named Caroline Hartley is found brutally murdered. She has had a tumultuous life, and any number of people might have had reason to kill her. Banks interviews those who knew Caroline years ago, as well as those who were closely involved with her shortly before her death. "Past Reason Hated" deals with such themes as struggling to come to terms with one's sexuality, the fears that cause people to commit irrational acts and the complicated and inexplicable nature of human relationships. "Past Reason Hated" is an engrossing and satisfying psychological mystery.

HASH(0x951d1d2c) étoiles sur 5 A bad day of skiing 19 août 2005
Par Linda Pagliuco - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Peter Robinson seems to be one of those unusual authors who improves with experience. While all of his books are enjoyable, Past Reason Hated is one of his early weaker productions. Inspector Banks is his likeable self and it's always a pleasure to read about him. Robinson's details about life in Yorkshire and London are also illuminating. But Past Reason starts strong only to run out of steam in the second half. Still worth reading in the same way that a bad day of skiing is better than a good day at work!

HASH(0x951d4180) étoiles sur 5 An excellent piece of work 6 octobre 2006
Par Michael K. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Poche
The novel just before this one in the DCI Alan Banks series, _The Hanging Valley_, was pretty lackluster, but Robinson springs back in this one with a major winner. A young woman is found murdered in her own parlor by her lesbian partner, Veronica, a classical recording playing over and over on the stereo. Caroline had been involved in a local amateur theater production of _Twelfth Night_ -- nice bit of irony there, and a plot-point as well if you pay attention -- and the director and the other cast members are all suspects. So is Veronica's ex-husband, so is the husband's current girlfriend, and so is Caroline's emotionally strained teenage brother, all with different and quite reasonable possible motives. The plot becomes more complex but it won't necessarily stay that way, a point the author has the Chief Inspector make several times. Banks is a humane man, not ordinarily quick to judge, and his growing regard for Veronica is very nicely rendered. Also heavily involved is newly-promoted DC Susan Gay -- an unfortunate surname, in the circumstances -- who was only a spear-carrier in the earlier installments. She's young and bright and has a great deal to learn, not least of which is to distrust her prejudices. The writing is smooth, the plotting holds together, the pace and the atmosphere of Eastdale in a rather bleak Christmas season are very well done, and the characterization is excellent. The best of the series so far.

HASH(0x951d454c) étoiles sur 5 Lesbians and Thespians 30 décembre 2004
Par snalen - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Caroline Hartley is found stabbed to death at their home by her lover Veronica a couple of days before Christmas. The cops are called and get digging. They dig into Veronica's family, her still somewhat embittered composer ex-husband and his new lover who both were seen calling soon before the crime. They dig into Caroline's past as a prostitute in London and her childhood with her strange, damaged younger brother Gary now living in a hopelessly neglected house in Harrogate with their dying father. And they dig more locally into the amateur dramatic society Caroline had joined, hard at work putting the finishing touches on a production of `Twelfth Night'.

Highly readable, fun stuff. Slightly disappointing. Robinson here is perhaps a bit weak on the vivid sense of place that is the hallmark of much of the best crime writing: Morse's Oxford, Rebus's Edinburgh: this, though set in the North Yorkshire Dales could really be anywhere, or at least anywhere in Britain. The characterization too could be a little stronger. And the solution is a bit too easy to see coming, mainly moreover, for literary reasons visible only to readers and not to the participating cast of characters. But I'm carping a bit. It's pretty good fun. I'll be reading the next one.

HASH(0x951d4630) étoiles sur 5 A Must Read! 31 mars 2005
Par Tania Hutchison - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This book is full of suspense, intriguing secrets and a wonderful cast of characters. There are no 'cookie cutter' characters here.

The story moves along at a perfect pace, and the end of the book is both shocking and satisfying. This book and its characters will stay with you long after you've put the book down. It's no surprise that this novel was awarded the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel.
