Many Rivers to Cross
Many Rivers to Cross | Peter Robinson
1 post | 1 reading
Peter Robinson, the acclaimed author of the bestselling series Stephen King calls "the best now on the market," returns with a gripping, emotionally charged mystery in which the revered detective Alan Banks must find the truth about a murder with possible racial overtones--and save a friend from ruin. In Eastvale, a young Middle Eastern boy is found dead, his body stuffed in a wheelbarrow on the East Side Estate. Detective Superintendent Banks and his team know they must tread carefully to solve this sensitive case. But tensions rise when they learn that the victim was stabbed somewhere else and dumped. Who is the boy, and where did he come from? Then, in a decayed area of Eastvale scheduled for redevelopment, a heroin addict is found dead. Was this just another tragic overdose or something darker? To prevent tensions from reaching a boiling point, Banks must find answers quickly. Yet just when he needs to be his sharpest, the seasoned detective finds himself distracted by a close friend's increasingly precarious situation. He needs a break--and gets one when he finds a connection to a real estate developer that could be key to finding the truth. With so many loose ends dangling, there is one thing Banks is sure of--solving the case may come at a terrible cost.

Today‘s theme in #AyUpAugust made me think of Inspector Banks, who is always putting music on!
The new one is published next month, 😊
A great detective series if anyone has not read them.


squirrelbrain I haven‘t read any Peter Robinson.... where do I start? 1mo
Andrew65 @squirrelbrain Plenty to look forward to. I actually started with book 10 to see whether I would like them then started from book 1. I think the series gets better as it progresses but book 1 gives key information about his personal life and important to read these in order to see the character development. (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @squirrelbrain That said they do read well as standalones. This is one of my favourite detective series. Along with the Roy Grace Series by Peter James and the Rebus Series by Ian Rankin. (edited) 1mo
