5.0 out of 5 stars The Sixth book in the Series, 23 May 2007
This review is from: Dry Bones That Dream (The Inspector Banks Series) (Paperback)
Peter Robinson grew up in Yorkshire, and is the author of a number of previous novels featuring Inspector Banks. He is the winner of numerous awards in the United States, Britain and Canada, and in 2002 he won the CWA Dagger in the Library. As I also come from Leeds the background to his stories is something that I have experienced first hand and because of this I have a special affection for his books. However they would be first class crime fiction wherever they were based.

It was the middle of the night when Chief Inspector Alan Banks arrived at the barn and saw Keith Rothwell for the first time or perhaps it would be better to say what was left of him. A short time earlier two masked men had brought the quiet accountant out of his farmhouse and blasted him with a shotgun

It was pretty obvious that this was a pre-meditated killing, the sort that a large wad of cash could buy, no questions asked, but Rothwell was not the sort of person to make enemies, certainly not ones that wanted to kill him. The investigation only muddies the water even more.

The deeper Banks digs the more he wanders what lies beneath the surface of the apparently happy and contented Rothwell family. When is old sparring partner Detective Superintendent Burgess arrives from Scotland Yard, the case takes yet another unexpected turn . . .
