Publisher's Summary

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. Is the suspect's wife a victim or could she be his accomplice? Popular with fans of P.D. James and Ruth Rendell, Edgar Award-winning author Peter Robinson has earned honors and critical praise for his Inspector Banks novels.


What the Critics Say

"A proven master of the British police procedural, Robinson should find a large audience for this gripping, psychologically astute tale." (Publishers Weekly)
"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)

Most Helpful

Boring story. Awful Narrator.

Probably no one could have brought this boring, repetitive and obvious story to life but the narrator here is the worst I?ve ever encountered in an audio book. The reader is so intent on affecting a broad Yorkshire accent that he pays no attention to character or content. All his women characters whine, all his male characters bark gruffly, all the time, no matter what they are saying. Avoid this one.

In Defense of Ron Keith

After some previous comments regarding the narrative abilities of Ron Keith, I feel the need to stick up for the man a bit. It is true that his accent is pretty much a one noter, even Canadians and Americans sound like they're from Yorkshire. And most of his women, not all, tend to sound a little Pythonesque. I find that amusing more than annoying though. He does do justice to the story, he doesn't rush, he sounds as though he is really enjoying himself, I feel that the main characters gain personality through Mr. Keith. I have a distinct image and flavor now of Alan Banks and Annie Cabbot. So while he does not dramatize the reading, he lends it a lot of character. Aftermath is as good as any Peter Robinson book, if you like P.D. James and Elizabeth George, you will appreciate Peter Robinson.
