DCI Banks 19
By Peter Robinson and Peter Robinson
DCI Banks finds the crime too close to home in the 19th novel in the series - a number one bestseller.
Banks isn't back, and that's the problem.
If DCI Alan Banks had been in his office when his old neighbour came calling, perhaps it would have turned out differently.
Perhaps an innocent man would still be alive.
And perhaps Banks's daughter wouldn't be on the run with a wanted man.
But Banks is on holiday, blissfully unaware of the terrible chain of events set in motion by the discovery of a loaded gun in a young woman's bedroom, and his daughter's involvement with the ultimate bad boy . . .
Peter Robinson grew up in Yorkshire, and now divides his time between Richmond and Canada. There are nineteen books in the bestselling Inspector Banks series - the critically acclaimed crime novels have won numerous awards and are published in translation all over the world.
