When Inspector Banks of Yorkshire investigates whether an abusive husband might be guilty of an unsolved string of murders, his suspicions are aroused by the details of the man's marriage.

"This multilayered novel puts Banks firmly in the upper echelon of British mystery writers." (Library Journal)
"A devilishly good plotter...[Robinson's] characterizations are so subtle that even the psychological profiler is stumped." (New York Times Book Review)

Great book!

I am so pleased that I didn't pay any attention to the original review.

This book is a refreshing twist on the crime thriller working after the apprehension of the suspect not up to it.

Excellent Police Procedural

Peter Robinson gives us another entry in the series of police procedurals set in Yorkshire and featuring Inspector Banks. Fully realized characters, well-drawn setting. Plotting a little hokey near the end with some breathless action not in keeping with Robinson's normally highly realistic style. Doesn't ruin it; just a bit melodramatic for Robinson.
The reader is masterful: wide range of great voice characterizations; every phrase read for meaning.
Highly recommended, if not quite so good as Robinson's "In a Dry Season".
