Description of this Book

A young Middle Eastern boy is dead - his body stuffed in a wheelie bin on the East Side Estate. Detective Superintendent Banks and his team are called to investigate this case whose profile increases even further when they realise he was stabbed elsewhere and dumped. Who is the boy, and where did he come from? Then a heroin addict is found dead of an overdose in an area of town scheduled for redevelopment as a shopping centre, and, while trying not to be distracted by his concern for his friend Zelda's increasingly dangerous situation, Banks discovers a connection with a shady property developer. Finding a solution to the case may come at a terrible cost...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Robinson also has a way of undercutting the genre's familiarity. With a deceptively unspectacular language, he sets about the process of unsettling the reader. * Independent * Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death * On Yorkshire Magazine * Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. * S Magazine * Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. * Guardian * The master of the police procedural. * Mail on Sunday * This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. * Daily Mail * The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. -- Stephen King Near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league. * Times * Praise for the DCI Banks series * : *
