Product description

Review

Praise for Peter Robinson - :

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 - The Times

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 - Independent

It's neither the setting nor even the characters that makes Robinson's work so satisfying, but the plotting of Swiss-watch precision - Independent

Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation - Observer

Praise for ABATTOIR BLUES - :

As always with the excellent DCI Alan Banks novels, you can expect the story to grip you from beginning to end. - Choice

A real page-turner that confirms Robinson as a master of crime fiction. - Bella Magazine

Book Description

The twenty-second novel in Number One bestselling author Peter Robinson's critically acclaimed DCI Banks series.
