Product description

From the Back Cover

"An exceptional series."--Washington Post

A peaceful demonstration in the town of Eastvale ends with fifty arrests--and the brutal stabbing death of a young constable. But Chief Inspector Alan Banks fears there is worse violence to come. For CID Superintendent Richard Burgess has arrived from London to take charge of the investigation, fueled by professional outrage and volatile, long-simmering hatreds.

Crossing Burgess could cost the Chief Inspector his career. But the killing of a flawed Eastvale policeman is not the only murder that needs to be solved here. And if Banks doesn't unmask the true assassin, his superior's misguided obsession might well result in further bloodshed.

A masterful novel of suspense, A Necessary End demonstrates how our weaknesses can lead to deadly consequences.

"A rich, multi-layered book, elegantly written and carefully plotted."--Virginian Pilot and Ledger-Star

"Watch out for those twists--they'll get you every time."--Ian Rankin

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"Thoughtful.... Vivid.... Challenging.... Like the region that breeds them, the people in Robinson's mystery flaunt their colors but keep their secrets." ---The New York Times Book Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
