Robinson once again achieves the high bar he’s set in all his previous Inspector Banks books: gut-wrenching plotting alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure. This one will stay with you for a long time. Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of Roadside Crosses).

This is book number 19 in the DCI Banks series. Robinson is reliably entertaining, brain-exercising and my remote ancestors (centuries ago) hailed from Yorkshire, so I feel some kinship, particularly with dry stone walls. I knocked off a point for the annoying stupidity of PR's characters, particularly the DCI's daughter.

This is book number 19 in the DCI Banks series. Only 4 more novels to go and I will be drumming my fingers awaiting the newest book. In spite of Peter Robinson being one of my favorite writers, I haven’t breezed through his books, one after another.

DCI Banks is to be savored, in my opinion, as the character ages and grows in his life and career. When I started this series his children were young and attending school. Now they are adults and their story lines intersect on occasion. While the majority of the story is focused on police investigation and mystery, a slice of his personal life is interjected here and there. Obviously I am a fan.

This story opens up with an old friend and neighbor of Banks arriving at Eastvale Police Station to report the discovery of a firearm in her daughter Erin’s bedroom. Alan Banks is on extended leave, vacationing in the American southwest so DI Annie Cabbot handles the situation. The woman isn’t thrilled with Banks’ absence but reluctantly gives the details to DI Cabbot.

Owning or possessing a firearm in the UK isn’t a common or simple affair as it is here in the US. It’s illegal to have an unregistered firearm so the consequences are quite strict. First off I thought, does this woman know she is turning in her daughter and that she will most likely be sent to prison?! I can’t conceive of doing that to my child. It’s mentioned that the lady most likely didn’t know the consequences and just wanted the gun out of her home.

Turns out DCI Banks’ daughter Tracy is a friend and roommate of Erin. They had a bit of a falling out over Erin’s boyfriend and that is why Erin was home with her parents. Fast forward and Tracy is with the boyfriend, letting him know Erin may be arrested. This basically sets in motion a dumpster fire of a situation as the boyfriend is indeed, a bad boy. A very bad man in fact and Tracy realizes too late she is serious danger.

There is murder, police investigations, a man hunt for a psychopath and danger for my favored vegetarian DI Annie Cabbot. What a story – I couldn’t put this one down.

To reveal more would be adding spoilers so I will stop here. Looking forward to more…only 4 books left {sob} and then I will be like an addict awaiting Mr. Robinson’s latest!

I've been on a Peter Robinson jag recently, partly because of a spell in hospital, for which I loaded up my Kindle Fire tablet.. Robinson is reliably entertaining, brain-exercising and my remote ancestors (centuries ago) hailed from Yorkshire, so I feel some kinship, particularly with dry stone walls. I knocked off a point for the annoying stupidity of PR's characters, particularly the DCI's daughter. But to give credit where that was due, Robinson defined a "Bad Boy" and the character's attraction to girls in their early 20s. I felt like a kid at the pictures on Saturday afternoon when we alll bellowed "Behind you!" when the hero didn't sense what was about to happen. The problem was "Bad Boy" followed "In a Dry Season", which was five-star and ticked the boxes in writing, plot and just about everything else. I still have a few of DCI Banks to read, but back home from hospital, I'm taking a breather, - John Stackhouse

Peter Robinson is one of my favorite authors. His series featuring DCI Alan Banks is one that shows the DCI with a keen intellect, a varied list of pop music, romantic interests that somehow aren't quite right, children who feel removed from his sights, and a man with a quick sense of humor. You can fall into anyone of his books and feel at home. Along the way you are brought up to par. You usually know what you are going to get with Peter Robinson.

I found this book was not one of the better DCI Banks series. Much of it seemed ho hum, and I could tell early on how the plot was going to come down. DCI Banks is in the US, trying to sort out his latest romantic failure. A lot on his mind, and while he is gone, his colleague, DI Annie Cabbot becomes caught up in a royal snafu. An old neighbor of Banks comes looking for him. She speaks with DI Cabbot and reports her daughter has a gun in the house. In the UK it is against the law to have an unregistered gun and the recipient can face prison. As the story unfolds, a death occurs, DCI Bank's daughter skips town with a criminal and as they say, all H*** breaks loose. DCI Banks returns home and so goes the story.

As I have stated, this is a minor story in the Banks series. Not one I would recommend as a first read, but good enough.
