Book Synopsis

A terrible crime. No obvious motive.

Banks is on the case.

A shocking mass murder occurs at a wedding in a small Dales church and a huge manhunt follows. Eventually, the shooter is run to ground and things take their inevitable course.

But Banks is convinced that the case is not as simple as it first appears, as ghosts from his own past also emerge. As he works to solve the case he discovers that past mistakes can mean regret, or they can mean revenge.







Book 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

‘The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong.’ - Stephen King

'Top-notch police procedure' - Jeffery Deaver
