Just gets better and better,
This review is from: Aftermath (The Inspector Banks Series) (Paperback)
This is a rattling good read! I've read quite a number of Inspector Banks crime novels and they just keep getting better. It might sound pretentious but I was half convinced it was a real case being described. Two patrol officers are called to a house because of a reported domestic disturbance. What they find is truly horrific and is redolent of the Fred and Rosemary West case.
In this novel Banks is an acting superintendent and is finding the responsibility too much. Peter Robinson once again demonstrates his supreme skill as a writer. His narrative keeps you on the edge of your seat, often you feel you know what is going to happen, but Robinson trips you up unexpectedly. I would not dream of suggesting the Peter Robinson is the new Ian Rankin, but he is equally as good, in some ways better. Inspector Banks is not the new Rebus; he is a much more engaging character than that. Highly recommended, buy it, or put in on your Christmas list.
