Many Rivers to Cross DCI Banks 26

by Peter Robinson

Crime / Mystery Thriller and Suspense

Many Rivers to Cross DCI Banks 26 Synopsis

A skinny young boy is found dead - his body carelessly stuffed into wheelie bin.

Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his team are called to investigate. Who is the boy, and where did he come from? Was he discarded as rubbish, or left as a warning to someone? He looks Middle Eastern, but no one on the East Side Estate has seen him before.

As the local press seize upon an illegal immigrant angle, and the national media the story of another stabbing, the police are called to investigate a less newsworthy death: a middle-aged heroin addict found dead of an overdose in another estate, scheduled for redevelopment.

Banks finds the threads of each case seem to be connected to the other, and to the dark side of organised crime in Eastvale. Does another thread link to his friend Zelda, who is facing her own dark side?

The truth may be more complex - or much simpler - than it seems . . .

Many Rivers to Cross DCI Banks 26 Press Reviews

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

Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death - On Yorkshire Magazine

Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. - S Magazine

Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. - Guardian

The master of the police procedural. - Mail on Sunday

This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. - Daily Mail

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. -- Stephen King Near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league. - Times
