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 - Marcel Berlins, The Times

Brilliant! . . . Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure. - Jeffery Deaver

Classic Robinson: a labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation - Observer

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

A decorated policeman is murdered on the tranquil grounds of the St. Peter's Police Treatment Center, shot through the heart with a crossbow arrow, and compromising photographs are discovered in his room.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is well aware that he must handle the highly sensitive and dangerously explosive investigation with the utmost discretion. And as he digs deeper, he discovers that the murder may be linked to an unsolved missing persons case from six years earlier--and the current crime may involve crooked cops.

A pulsating, electrifying novel of suspense, Watching the Dark is one of Peter Robinson's finest novels.
