Fiction, Crime & mystery

The thrilling twenty-fourth installment in Peter Robinson's thrilling Banks Series.

A terrible crime. No obvious motive.
Banks is on the case.

'Top-notch police procedure'
- Jeffery Deaver 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 plagued with doubts as to exactly what happened outside the church that day, and why. Struggling with the death of his first serious girlfriend and the return of profiler Jenny Fuller into his life, Banks feels the need to dig deeper into the murders, and as he does so, he uncovers forensic and psychological puzzles that lead him to the past secrets that might just provide the answers he is looking for.

When the surprising truth becomes clear, it is almost too late.

Praise for Sleeping in the Ground: DCI Banks 24

  • Peter Robinson has for too long, and unfairly, been in the shadow of Ian Rankin; perhaps PIECE OF MY HEART, the latest in the Chief Inspector Banks series, will give him the status he deserves, near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league. - The Times

  • 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
