Banks and his colleagues draw you in with a troubling murder and an old crime. This sounds like something from today's news. Couldn't stop reading. Peter Robinson is a master of his craft.
Banks has been promoted to chief Superintendent and has been asked to join a task force to investigate a historical sexual assault case against a television personality. While Annie is investigating the rape and murder of a young girl. In more than one way the two complex cases are similar and very different. Robinson masterfully pulls off a story pulling in details from current affairs in the world such as sexual assault and immigration and race relations.
