9780061809491: The Price of Love and Other Stories

When DCI Alan Banks arrived in Eastvale his life was every bit as much of a mess as it is now. But he is holding an envelope that could change everything he understood about the events that sent him north twenty years ago. Walking again the narrow alleys and backstreets of his mind, he remembers the seedy Soho nights of his last case - dubious businessmen in dodgy clubs, young girls on the game. And a killer on the loose.

In addition to the brand-new novella that fills in the gaps in Banks's life before Yorkshire, Peter Robinson gives us ten more brilliant and eclectic stories that have never before been published in the UK.

The Eastvale Ladies' Poker Circle finds that murder may be just another game of risk. Is a suitcase of cash worth a man's head on a plate? And tragedy leads a young boy to learn the price of love . . .

Review:

'Outstanding . . . one of the best voices in contemporary crime fiction' ( Publishers Weekly)

'A first class storyteller' ( shotsmag.co.uk)

'After 18 tales of the fiendishly good DCI Alan Banks, the bestselling author delves into his leading man's past. For die-hard fans [The Price of Love] explains how Banks came to be in Yorkshire and how he got his mysterious scar. For the rest of us, it's the start of a beautiful relationship with the novelists's extensive back catalogue' ( Shortlist)

Praise for Piece of My Heart and Friend of the Devil ( :)

A police procedural that grips like pliers ( Independent on Sunday)

The writing is well up to the author's high standard ( The Times)

From the Publisher:

Several of the (poorer) reviews for this book are based on not realising that this is a novella and collection of stories.

The product description, and the blurb printed on the book, make it very clear that it is not a novel:
'In addition to the brand-new novella that fills in the gaps in Banks's life before Yorkshire, Peter Robinson gives us ten more brilliant and eclectic stories that have never before been published in the UK.'.
