5.0 out of 5 stars A Chief Inspector Banks Mystery, 23 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Friend of the Devil: The 17th DCI Banks Mystery (Hardcover)
Peter Robinson grew up in Yorkshire, and is the author of thirteen 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. This book is the latest in the Chief Inspector Banks novels.

On a cliff overlooking the North Sea, a woman in a wheelchair stares with unseeing eyes out at the waves. looking at something she will never see again because she is dead. She has been murdered. Miles away in a storeroom in Eastvale, Yorkshire, a young woman lies still on a heap of scraps of leather. She has also been murdered. The bodies of the two women are discovered at about the same time that DI Annie Cabbot, on secondment to the Eastern Area force, wakes up with a severe hangover in the bed of a young man she barely recognizes . . .

Peter Robinson weaves another intricate plot, as only he can. If I am not mistaken this is number 17 in the Chief Inspector Banks series and they have all been excellent reading. The author's writing style makes for easy reading and his characters, particularly his lead character are well established and almost seem like old friends.
