This Sunday Times Number One bestselling DCI Banks book by Peter Robinson has the team investigating two highly contemporary crimes - each echoing and illuminating the other.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER.

The twenty third instalment of the NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING DCI Banks Series.

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. - Stephen King

Two young girls.

Two unspeakable crimes.

Fifty years separate them - their pain connects them.

When the body of a 15-year-old is found in a remote countryside lane, beaten and broken, DI Annie Cabbot is brought in to investigate how the child could possibly have fallen victim to such brutality.

Newly promoted Detective Superintendent Alan Banks is faced with a case that is as cold as they come. Now in her 60s, Linda Palmer was attacked aged 14 by celebrity entertainer Danny Caxton, yet the crime has never been investigated - until now.

As each steps closer to uncovering the truth, they'll unearth secrets much darker than they ever could have guessed . . .

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...

Ex-college lecturer Gavin Miller is found dead; his distorted body strewn across a disused railway track near his home. There's no sign of a struggle, and no concrete evidence except for one distinguishing package: £5,000 of cash, tucked inside the man's pocket. But when DCI Banks delves into Miller's past, he uncovers a troubled existence tarnished by accusations of abuse and misconduct which throws up an array of puzzling questions.What really occurred at the college where the victim used to teach?How was he embroiled in political activism at Essex University, over forty years ago?And what links him to an upstanding pillar of the community, who also harbours a dark secret from her past?One thing is clear: someone will stop at nothing - even murder - to prevent Banks from discovering the truth . . .
