Author(s): Peter Robinson
Masterfully written and pulsing with suspense, Peter Robinson delivers a mystery ripped straight from the headlines in the ninth installment of the award-winning Inspector Banks series.
On a rainy night in Eastvale, a young man is found in an alleyway, smashed over the head with a beer bottle and beaten to death. What first looks like a typical after-hours pub brawl gone wrong soon becomes more complex and sinister. The victim, Jason Fox, was a member of the Albion League, a white power organization, and had recently been let go from his job because of his racist views.
There are many who might have wished Jason dead: the Pakistani youths he insulted in the pub earlier that evening; the shady friends of his business partner; or perhaps someone within the Albion League
itself. Just when Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks thinks he has a handle on the case, an unexpected discovery forces him to reconsider everything he believes.
Peter Robinson grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in Canada. His Inspector Banks series has won numerous awards in Britain, Europe, the United States and Canada. There are now fifteen novels published by Pan Macmillan in the series. Aftermath, the twelfth, was a Sunday Times bestseller.
