This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm.
Praise for the DCI Banks series
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong.
Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death
Near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league.
Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes.
Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series warmth makes you feel all's right with the world.
The master of the police procedural.
Robinson also has a way of undercutting the genre's familiarity. With a deceptively unspectacular language, he sets about the process of unsettling the reader.
