9780060502164: Final Account (Inspector Banks Novels)

“Impressive. . . . A dark, unsettling story.”—New York Times Book Review

There’s more than blood and bone beneath the skin. . . . 

The victim, a nondescript number cruncher, was murdered just yards away from his wife and daughter. And the crime scene is one that could chill the blood of even the most seasoned police officer.

But the strange revelations about an ordinary accountant’s extraordinary secret life are what truly mystify Chief Inspector Alan Banks. Lies breed further deceptions and blood begets blood . . . and all the while a killer watches, hidden in plain sight.

Twisty, suspenseful, and thoroughly riveting, Final Account is one of Peter Robinson’s best thrillers.

“Inspector Banks is a man for all seasons.”—Michael Connelly

“Peter Robinson is a master.”—Tess Gerritsen

About the Author:

One of the world’s most popular and acclaimed writers, Peter Robinson is the bestselling, award-winning author of the Inspector Banks series; he has also written two short-story collections and three standalone novels, which combined have sold more than ten million copies around the world. Among his many honors and prizes are the Edgar Award, the CWA (UK) Dagger in the Library Award, and Sweden’s Martin Beck Award. He divides his time between Toronto and England.

From Booklist:

In the Yorkshire countryside, middle-aged accountant and financial consultant Keith Rothwell is murdered while his wife and daughter are forced to watch. Detective Inspector Alan Banks and his assistant, Constable Susan Gay, are the lead investigators on the case. As Banks and Gay investigate, they reveal the victim to have been a conservative, quiet man virtually devoid of personality and style. But then a beautiful young musician sees Rothwell's picture in the paper and reveals that he had a secret life: as Robert Calvert, the musician's former lover. Meanwhile, Rothwell's financial dealings are coming into focus: he was skimming from one of his clients, a drug-dealing Caribbean dictator, and may have been murdered for his transgressions. The few loose ends to the case trouble Banks, and he pursues them until he draws a surprising conclusion. Tremendous plotting and solid characters make this a superior British procedural from the critically acclaimed author of Wednesday's Child. Wes Lukowsky
