His fans include Stephen King, Michael Connelly, Tess Gerritsen, Ian Rankin, and Louise Penney. He has won acclaim and numerous international prizes and awards, including the Edgar. Now, Peter Robinson, one of the world’s greatest suspense writers, returns with a powerful mystery in which his legendary Detective Superintendent Alan Banks must solve two perplexing crimes.

Two suspicious deaths challenge DS Alan Banks and his crack investigative team.

A young local student’s body is found in an abandoned car on a lonely country road. The death looks like suicide, but there are too many open questions for Banks and his team to rule out foul play. The victim didn’t own a car. She didn’t even drive. How did she get there? Where—and when—did she die? Did someone move her, and if so, why?

A man in his sixties is found dead in a gully up on the wild moorland. He is wearing an expensive suit and carrying no identification. Post mortem findings indicate that he died from injuries sustained during a fall. Was it an accident—did he slip and fall? Or was he pushed? Why was he up there? And why are there no signs of a vehicle near where he fell?

As the inconsistencies multiply and the mysteries surrounding these two cases proliferate, a source close to Annie reveals a piece of information that shocks the team and impacts the investigations. An old enemy has returned in a new guise—a nefarious foe who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get what he wants.

With the stakes raised, the hunt is on. But will Banks be able to find the evidence to stop him in time?

Seemed a little carelessly put together. I noticed several typographical errors, but that's more on the publisher than on the author. I suspect that Zelda's emtramce imto the Pib at the end purtends the mext novel. Hope it does, anyway.

Starts out a bit slow but quickly becomes a compelling mystery. Definitely worth reading.

Peter Robinson has been my favorite mystery writer for years, but I’m frankly disappointed with “Careless Love.” The plot is thin—I had things pretty much figured out by the time I was halfway through the book, something that I’ve never achieved in reading a Banks novel. There was very little mystery and no drama. Even more strangely, the character of Zelda is introduced—almost force-fed into the narrative, apparently to provide a hook for an even thinner subplot: the return of a past villain, Phil Keane. But that subplot never develops; rather, Zelda shows up at the very end, apparently to inform Banks that she’s spotted Keane in London. So we’re left hanging with what can only be called a teaser for the next Banks installment, something I’m surprised a good writer like Robinson would feel the need to accommodate.
