In A Dry Season is the tenth novel in Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series, following on from Dead Right. During a blistering summer, drought has depleted Thornfield Reservoir, uncovering the remains of a small village called Hobb's End – hidden from view for over 40 years. For a curious young boy this resurfaced hamlet is a magical playground . . . until he unearths a human skeleton. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is given the impossible task of identifying the victim – a woman who lived in a place that no longer exists, whose former residents are scattered to the winds. Anyone else might throw in the towel but Banks is determined to uncover the murky past buried beneath a flood of time . . . In A Dry Season is followed by the eleventh book in this Yorkshire-based crime series, Cold is the Grave.

Ο υποδιοικητής χαμογέλασε όταν σκέφτηκε την ομοιότητα που ένιωθε ότι υπήρχε ανάμεσα σ’ εκείνον και στον ιχνηλάτη σκύλο».Ο Ρόκκο Σκιαβόνε είχε μανία να παρομοιάζει με ζώο κάθε ανθρώπινη φυσιογνωμία που συναντούσε μπροστά του. Περισσότερο όμως από το σέτερ που προκάλεσε τη σκέψη, ο υποδιοικητής θύμιζε μάλλον κυνηγόσκυλο σπινόνε, δασύτριχο, απεριποίητο και όχι ιδιαίτερα κοινωνικό όπως είναι, πάντα όμως πειθαρχημένο στο ένστικτο του κυνηγού. Ο Σκιαβόνε είναι εριστικός μπάτσος, κάθε άλλο παρά άσπιλος και αμόλυντος, από τη Ρώμη και πιο συγκεκριμένα από το Τραστέβερε, με πληγωμένη ψυχή και αθεράπευτες ενοχές. Στην Αόστα που τον έχουν μεταθέσει, θα προτιμούσε να προφυλάσσει από τη βροχή τα αγαπημένα του Clarks και ν’ απολαμβάνει τις εφήμερες ερωτικές του σχέσεις παρά ν’ αρχίσει άλλη μια έρευνα στις χιονισμένες Άλπεις.Μια γυναίκα, μια σύζυγος που πλησίαζε στο φθινόπωρο της ζωής, βρέθηκε πεθαμένη από την οικιακή βοηθό. Κρεμασμένη από το πολύφωτο ενός δωματίου βυθισμένου στο σκοτάδι. Οι καταστροφές τριγύρω φανερώνουν κλοπή. Ο Ρόκκο δεν πείθεται. Μια σειρά από συμπτώσεις και αποκλίσεις, όπως και το αμφιλεγόμενο πολλών χαρακτήρων, μετατρέπουν σιγά σιγά την εικόνα της ληστείας σε ομιχλώδες τοπίο ανθρώπινου, περιβαλλοντικού και εγκληματικού μυστηρίου.

Banks is on holiday, headed for Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. His daughter, Tracy, home in Leeds and angry with her father, is headed for some very deep trouble. Robinson's nineteenth Inspector Banks novel is a stunner. Handguns are illegal in the U.K., and whenever one is reported, the police swing into high gear. But things go very wrong when the police swoop down on a home in Eastvale to seize a reported handgun. In the confusion, Patrick Doyle, a former neighbour of Banks, is shot. Doyle's daughter, Erin, is to blame for the gun being in the house, and while she's in police custody, her housemate in Leeds, Tracy Banks, decides to let Erin's boyfriend know that the police have been around their place. Bad decision. When Banks returns home from holiday, Tracy is missing. And that's not the worst of it. Robinson's latest Inspector Banks novel is a powerful story of how the volatile emotions of love and resentment can turn deadly when fear comes creeping in. From the Hardcover edition.

It began with a faceless, maggot-ridden corpse in a tranquil, hidden valley above the village of Swainshead. Or did it really begin with the unsolved murder in the same area over five years earlier? The villagers, especially those who frequent the White Rose, are annoyingly silent. Among the suspects are the Collier brothers, Stephen and Nicholas, from the wealthiest and most powerful family in Swainsdale; John Fletcher, a local farmer; Sam Greenock, owner of the village's best guest house; and his unhappy wife, Katie, who knows more than she realizes. When the Colliers use their influence to slow down the investigation and the others clam up, Inspector Banks heads for Toronto to track down the killer. He soon finds himself in a race against time as events rush towards the shocking conclusion.

On a cliff edge overlooking the North Sea, a quadriplegic woman in a wheelchair stares unseeingly at the waves. She had been murdered. And, miles away, in a storeroom in the Maze, a medieval warren of yards and alleys at the heart of Eastvale, Yorkshire, a young woman lies sprawled on a heap of leather scraps. She too has been murdered. Their bodies are discovered at about the same time that DI Annie Cabbot, on secondment to the Eastern Area force, wakes with a severe hangover in the bed of a young man she barely recognizes. From these three strands, Peter Robinson weaves his latest complex and compelling story. While DCI Alan Banks tries to figure out how anyone was able to murder Hayley Daniels, when the closed-circuit cameras trained on the entrances to the Maze show that no one preceded or followed her into its shadows, Cabbot learns two things that make her blood run cold: the real intentions of her one-night stand and the true identity of the quadriplegic woman. A ghost from the past is back to haunt both her and Banks. Peter Robinson’s Inspector Banks novels are among the best detective fiction in the world, and their multi-layered stories continue to surprise, engross, thrill, and delight readers. Friend of the Devil is a superb showcase of how deftly he balances horror with humour, police procedures with the nuances of all-too-human emotions, and endings with the promise of new starts. Once again, Robinson transcends the usual limits of the genre in this dazzling novel about the obsessive power of vengeance. From the Hardcover edition.
