4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


When Alan Banks receives a disturbing message from his brother, Roy, he abandons the peaceful Yorkshire Dales for the bright lights of London, to seek him out.

But Roy seems to have vanished into thin air. Meanwhile, DI Annie Cabbot is called to a quiet stretch of road just outside Eastvale, where a young woman has been found dead in her car.

In the victim's pocket, scribbled on a slip of paper, police discover Banks' name and address.

Living in Roy's empty South Kensington house, Banks finds himself digging into the life of the brother he never really knew, nor even liked. And as he begins to uncover a few troubling surprises, the two cases become sinisterly entwined. 'The Banks novels are, simply put, the best series now on the market' - Stephen King.

A good page turner,an engrossing mystery.

Review by

Another enjoyable Inspector Banks novel. This is the 15th book in the series and is more set in London than Yorkshire and the change is good. Plus this story also brings in his family more than others, which really enhances the character, making it easier to understand the motivation behind his methods.<br/><br/>I'm looking forward to the next.
