Louise Penny calls In the darkish Places "brilliant." Tess Gerritsen says it truly is "thrilling." And Michael Connelly describes Peter Robinson as "amazing." one of many world's maximum suspense writers returns with this sensational new novel that includes Inspector Alan Banks, hailed by way of Michael Connelly as "a guy for all seasons."
It's a double secret: younger males have vanished, and the research ends up in troubling clues in diversified locations.
As Banks and his workforce scramble for solutions, the inquiry takes a fair darker flip whilst a truck careens off an icy street in a freak hailstorm. within the wreckage, rescuers locate the driving force, who used to be killed on effect, in addition to one other body—a physique that was once lifeless good earlier than the crash.
Snow falls. The physique count number rises. And Banks, perceptive and curious as ever, feels himself being drawn deeper right into a net of crime, and at its heart something—or someone—dark and hazardous mendacity in wait.
Vibrating with stress, ingeniously plotted, and full of soul and poignancy, In the darkish Places is a awesome success from this masterful talent.
