The 20th in the DCI Banks series, Bad Boy is arguably not Robinson’s best and certainly not one to start with if you’re not a pre-existing fan of the series. Absent for much of the novel, it lacks Banks narrative and instead his partner DI Anne Cabbot and his daughter Tracy are thrust into the spotlight. The interesting turn of events and untraditional story should be enough to keep his die-hard fans reasonably happy.

If you like Peter Robinson you might also like to read books by Ian Rankin, Iain Banks and Reginald Hill.

Synopsis

Bad Boy by Peter Robinson

Banks isn't back, and that's the problem. If DCI Alan Banks had been in his office when his old neighbour came calling, perhaps it would have turned out differently. Perhaps an innocent man would still be alive. And perhaps Banks's daughter wouldn't be on the run with a wanted man. But Banks is on holiday, blissfully unaware of the terrible chain of events set in motion by the discovery of a loaded gun in a young woman's bedroom, and his daughter's involvement with the ultimate bad boy ...

Reviews

'Brilliant! ... Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure.'
Jeffery Deaver

'Superbly cinematic from the beginning to the explosive finale, this would be a thrilling movie.'
Joseph Wambaugh

'Riveting'
Marcel Berlins, The Times

'A masterclass in the organisation of narrative'
Barry Forshaw, Independent
