Publisher's Summary

The 22nd novel in number-one best-selling author Peter Robinson's critically acclaimed DCI Banks series. When two boys vanish under mysterious circumstances, the local community is filled with unease. And when a caravan belonging to one of the youths is burned to the ground, and a bloodstain is discovered in a disused World War Two hangar nearby, things quickly become much more sinister.
Assigned to the case, DCI Banks and his team are baffled by the mystery laid out before them. But when a motor accident throws up a gruesome discovery, the investigation spins into a higher gear - and in another direction. As Banks and his team struggle desperately to find the missing boy who holds the key to the puzzle, they find themselves in a race against time where it's their turn to become the prey.

Banks is back!

After the last couple of DCI Banks stories I was prepared to give up on Mr Robinson but this book gets us back to an interesting story with some excitement and with the characters he has developed over quite a few years. A good read.

Back to top form for Inspector Banks

Listening to this was a delight, great characterisation and plotting, humorous and intelligent writing. Peter Robinson goes back to basics in this book, using the interplay of the Dales landscape and plot to great effect. The story begins with a fairly innocuous rural crime but builds steadily into an utterly gripping thriller.
The usual suspects all return to form in this novel, Banks, Annie, Dirty Dick and my favourite Winsome. I thought the last couple of outings for Bank were a bit tired but this one restored my faith.
The narrator was also very good, delivering a range of different voices with great skill.
