9780062240545: In the Dark Places: An Inspector Banks Novel (Inspector Banks Novels)

Published in the United Kingdom and Canada as Abattoir Blues

Louise Penny calls In the Dark Places "brilliant." Tess Gerritsen says it's "thrilling." And Michael Connelly describes Peter Robinson as "amazing." One of the world's greatest suspense writers returns with this sensational new novel featuring Inspector Alan Banks, hailed by Michael Connelly as "a man for all seasons."

It's a double mystery: Two young men have vanished, and the investigation leads to two troubling clues in two different locations.

As Banks and his team scramble for answers, the inquiry takes an even darker turn when a truck careens off an icy road in a freak hailstorm. In the wreckage, rescuers find the driver, who was killed on impact, as well as another body—a body that was dead well before the crash.

Snow falls. The body count rises. And Banks, perceptive and curious as ever, feels himself being drawn deeper into a web of crime, and at its center something—or someone—dark and dangerous lying in wait.

Vibrating with tension, ingeniously plotted, and filled with soul and poignancy, In the Dark Places is a remarkable achievement from this masterful talent.

Book Description William Morrow. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Book Condition: New. Published in Britain and Canada as Abattoir Blues, Peter Robinson's 22nd Inspector Banks investigation (following Children of the Revolution) is a double mystery: two young men have vanished, and the investigation leads to troubling clues in two different locations. As Banks and his team scramble for answers, the inquiry takes an even darker turn when a truck careens off an icy road in a freak hailstorm, and in the wreckage, rescuers find the driver, killed on impact, as well as another body—one that was dead well before the crash. Snow falls, the body count rises, and Banks, perceptive and curious as ever, feels himself being drawn deeper into a web of crime—and, at its center, something dark and dangerous lying in wait. "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."—Louise Penny"It's neither the setting nor even the characters that makes Robinson's work so satisfying, but the plotting of Swiss-watch precision."—Independent (London) 327.
