Publisher's Summary

Michael Connelly calls Peter Robinson "an author with amazing empathy, a snare-trap ear for dialogue, and a clear eye for the telling detail".
See why in Sleeping in the Ground, the gripping new novel starring Alan Banks - featuring an opening scene you'll never forget and a finale you won't see coming.
At the doors of a charming country church, an unspeakable act destroys a wedding party. A huge manhunt ensues. The culprit is captured. The story is over.
Except it isn't. For Alan Banks, still struggling with a tragic loss of his own, there's something wrong about this case - something unresolved. Reteaming with profiler Jenny Fuller, the relentless detective dives deeper into the crime...deep enough to unearth long-buried secrets that reshape everything Banks thought he knew about the events outside that chapel.
And when at last the shocking truth becomes clear, it's almost too late.

Big fan of Banks and Peter Robinson!

Peter Robinson has done what some authors seem unable to achieve- he has continued to write his Alan Banks series with the same high quality for each book instead of letting his characters become boring. This latest Alan Banks novel is as fresh and interesting as his earlier books, and the characters have continued to grow and develop into old friends. I’m also pleased that Robinson hasn’t created unnecessary drama and trauma in the characters’ personal lives to try and keep things interesting. While the characters have all gone through their challenges it’s not excessive and doesn’t detract from the story. Big thumbs up - highly recommended to fans of British mystery/ detective novels.

Weaker than previous Banks books.

A little disappointed to be honest. Both story, characters and performance was below par. still I'll probably give the next one a go.
