9780062393081: In the Dark Places: An Inspector Banks Novel (Inspector Banks Novels)

Published in the United Kingdom and Canada as Abattoir Blues

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is back in this crackling novel of suspense, a moody and sophisticated mystery full of serpentine curves from New York Times bestselling, Edgar Award-winning author Peter Robinson.

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--a scorched van and a peculiar bloodstain in an abandoned airport hangar.

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.

Review:

"Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation."--The Observer

"It's neither the setting nor even the characters that makes Robinson's work so satisfying, but the plotting of Swiss-watch precision."--Independent
