9780062416612: A Necessary End: An Inspector Banks Novel (Inspector Banks Novels)

In the tradition of Ian Rankin and Elizabeth George, this masterful novel of suspense--from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Peter Robinson--spins a story of professional jealousy that could result in more than one murder.

A peaceful demonstration in the normally quiet town of Eastvale ends with fifty arrests--and the brutal stabbing death of a young constable. But Chief Inspector Alan Banks fears there is worse violence in the offing. For CID Superintendent Richard Burgess has arrived from London to take charge of the investigation, fueled by professional outrage and volatile, long-simmering hatreds.

Almost immediately, Burgess descends with vengeful fury upon the members of a sixties-style commune--while Banks sifts through the rich Yorkshire soil around him, turning over the earthy, unsettling secrets of seemingly placid local lives. Crossing Burgess could cost the Chief Inspector his career. But the killing of a flawed Eastvale policeman is not the only murder that needs to be solved here. And if Banks doesn't unmask the true assassin, his superior's misguided obsession might well result in further bloodshed.

Peter Robinson once again explores the human psyche in a novel that demonstrates how our weaknesses can lead to deadly consequences.

Product Description:

In the usually peaceful town of Eastvale, a simmering tension has now reached breaking point. An anti-nuclear demonstration has ended in violence, leaving one policeman stabbed to death. Fired by professional outrage, Superintendent 'Dirty Dick' Burgess descends with vengeful fury on the inhabitants of 'Maggie's Farm', an isolated house high on the daleside.

Inspector Banks is uneasy about Burgess's handling of the investigation. But he has been warned off the case. Soon Banks realizes that the only way he can salvage his career is by beating Burgess to the killer . . .

'Inspector Banks – a man for all seasons, he knows that often the answers to the clues he seeks are hidden in his own heart' Michael Connelly

'An award-winning writer with ideas that are imaginative and plots that are refreshingly cliché-free' Time Out

'If you haven't caught up with Peter Robinson already, now is the time to start' Independent on Sunday
