    Another "Banks" shot.

    This is yet another tour de force for Peter Robinson's flawed modern hero-policeman. The writerly skill with which Robinson mixes descriptions of mundane modern police work and the colorful life in the local pubs, ("...a pint and a pie..."),exposes us to the day to day lives of his cast of players, while leading us down the twisting path of uncovering the work of the bad guys. Despite the obvious value to a reader of some previous knowledge of character and context, one can easily pick up any of Robinson's Inspector Banks stories, and become immediately enveloped by the angst of locale and story line. In particular, if you know any anglophiles these Robinson books are for them.

    Peter Robinson at his best

    Bad Boy has a complex plot, many characters, and few flaws. A fairly straightforward murder expands into a web of baffling interconnected criminal activity, which Annie and Alan struggle to decipher. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed.
