4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings)


The number 35, the Hill is an ordinary house in an ordinary street.

But it is about to become infamous. When two police constables are sent to the house following a report of a domestic disturbance, they stumble upon a truly horrific scene.

A scene which leaves one of them dead and the other fighting for her life and career.

The identity of a serial killer, the Chameleon, has finally been revealed.

But his capture is only the beginning of a shocking investigation that will test Inspector Alan Banks to the absolute limit. 'It demonstrates how the crime novel, when done right, can reach parts that other books can't ...A considerable achievement' - "Guardian". 'Move over Ian Rankin - there's a new gunslinger in town looking to take over your role as top British police procedural author.

With "Aftermath", Chief Inspector Alan Banks emerges as a definite contender for fiction's new top cop ...' - "Independent On Sunday".

Review by

Inspector Alan Banks has a serial killer on his hands but the revelation of his identity is just the start of Banks' problems, as yet again he works his way through another well-plotted Peter Robinson story.

Can you imagine a book starting with catching the criminals instead of the death? Well this one has an even more incredible ending.

Review by

This story begins with the culprit being caught, kind of. It's then that we join the current investigation into the crimes. The story is backward compared to many crime novels but that is what I enjoyed about it so much. Plus I do enjoy the characters in the Inspector Banks series and interested to enough to know and care what happens to them. Unfortuantely I've not read the books in order but it's still enjoyable.<br/>

One of Robinson's best in the Alan Banks series.

Review by

Peter Robinson, in my opinion, is one of the best writers of police procedurals. His characters are fascinating and believable. The stories get deeper and more meaningful and the characters richer and more complex with each new book. Alan Banks has grown to become a complicated man who is in conflict about his broken marriage and the demands of his job. I look forward to reading the next installment in this popular series.
