The Price of Love

The Price of Love

When DCI Alan Banks arrived in Eastvale his life was every bit as much of a mess as it is now. But he is holding an envelope that could change everything he understood about the events that sent him north twenty years ago.

Walking again the narrow alleys and backstreets of his mind, he remembers the seedy Soho nights of his last case – dubious businessmen in dodgy clubs, young girls on the game. And a killer on the loose.

In addition to the brand-new novella that fills in the gaps in Banks’s life before Yorkshire, Peter Robinson gives us ten more brilliant and eclectic stories that have never before been published in the UK. The Eastvale Ladies’ Poker Circle finds that murder may be just another game of risk. Is a suitcase of cash worth a man’s head on a plate? And tragedy leads a young boy to learn the price of love . . .

Reviews

Robinson once again puts his skills to work in a police procedural that grips like pliers
Independent on Sunday
Praise for Piece of My Heart and Friend of the Devil
:
The writing is well up to the author's high standard
<I>The Times</I>
'Peter Robinson has for too long, and unfairly, been in the shadow of Ian Rankin; perhaps PIECE OF MY HEART, the latest in the Chief Inspector Banks series, will give him the status he deserves, near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league . . . PIECE OF MY HEART brilliantly interweaves past and present, providing two strands of tension for the price of one, and further enhancing Alan Banks's reputation as one of crime fiction's most appealing cops.'
Marcel Berlins, <i>The Times</i>
Outstanding . . . one of the best voices in contemporary fiction
Publishers Weekly
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market
Stephen King
A police procedural that grips like pliers
<i>Independent on Sunday</i>
After 18 tales of the fiendishly good DCI Alan Banks, the bestselling author delves into his leading man's past
