Quotes & Awards

  • “Robinson’s last two Banks books have been winners...and so is Aftermath.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “A proven master of the British police procedural, Robinson should find a large audience for this gripping, psychologically astute tale.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The story is gruesome and graphic, but is hauntingly effective, especially when juxtaposed with Ron Keith’s precise and melodious reading. His accent is genteel and euphonic, and his intonation lively, creating a startling contrast to this story of murder and evil passions. As is typical in Robinson’s writing, past and present, public crimes and private life all merge in a compelling and unforgettable story.” 

    AudioFile

  • “Robinson’s canvas is as admirably broad and his insight into character and motive as keen as ever.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa Adair | 1/27/2014

    " Great book. Latest in the series, which just gets better and better. An examination of victim vs. victimizer - and how difficult it is sometimes to see them apart. Chief INspector Alan Banks also continues to grow in his own relationships. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vionna | 1/21/2014

    " I like his writing style with a very detailed plot line that kept your interest from page 1. His main characters were well defined as were his subsidiary ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vivien | 1/21/2014

    " A really enjoyable read. Full of intrigue and suspense. A 'must read' book if you enjoy thriller/crime genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/15/2014

    " Creepy plot and easy to read without having read any of the others involving the main detective but does suffer from 'Strong woman who has ~~trauma~~ in her background' syndrome and does fail the Bechdel test, which is disappointing for a book with so many active female characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 1/12/2014

    " A wonderful and excitng murder mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Franco Bolli | 11/23/2013

    " I found this even better and much more interesting, psychologically speaking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Fillmore | 10/9/2013

    " I have read all of Peter Robinson's books and there are no bad ones. My favourite mystery writer by far!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 9/18/2013

    " Really kept my interest, although a hard-to-imagine situation at the end. Kept the main characters moving along in their lives so that I want to read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 8/24/2013

    " Interesting crime novel in which the culprit is immediately caught. It's largely about the ramifications of a serial killer's crimes and also how victims can become perpetrators. Banks is a decent character too, far better than in the chaotic TV version. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 8/12/2013

    " This just might be the best of this series that I have read. Robinson weaves together a number of subplots but without losing focus or distracting the reader from the main story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Harry Lane | 1/1/2013

    " Police procedural. Lots of twists and turns, and conveys a feeling of gritty reality, but somehow never really grabbed me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 10/6/2012

    " BOT, WOW kind of a story. More of this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma Purple | 8/31/2012

    " Another enjoyable book from the banks series. This one was really sinister, and was difficult to read in terms if content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tan | 7/30/2011

    " First time reading a Banks novel - really enjoyed it. Robinson's characters are well thought out, and the plot is twisty without getting lost. I will definitely pick his books up again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 7/14/2011

    " Another terrific read that kept me turning those pages. The characters are real, and the stories so complex, that I hate for the book to end. Fortunately, I think I can look forward to reading about 20 more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 4/20/2011

    " I'm not finished with this, but it is a fascinating novel which moves Banks on in his career and personal life, and provides a (possibly unwelcome) insight into the investigation of a serial killer's motives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/11/2011

    " Thanks to BBC for been able to watch this series, which promises to be really good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 4/6/2011

    " Banks .... Okay, few twists. Like how PR manages to get Canada connection now and then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 3/4/2011

    " Um tema sensível, uma escrita poderosa, admirável!( As Raízes Do Mal ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylol | 12/9/2010

    " Can you imagine a book starting with catching the criminals instead of the death? Well this one has an even more incredible ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/7/2010

    " An excellent book for people who enjoy whodunnits. This book keeps you guessing until the end. Peter Robinson has written a number of Inspector Banks novels and each one is well written and keeps you guessing until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 10/18/2010

    " Not bad but didn't seem much different from other british novels of the same genre. Also wrapped up too quickly - everything explained and ordered in the last 2 chapters. All that build up sort of for nothing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maybaby | 10/15/2010

    " I couldn't put it down....it is the first one of his books I've read. I got it as a free download to my Kobo. It became my bed time read and I found myself going to bed earlier just so I could manage a few more pages before drifting off, Kobo in hand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 10/12/2010

    " Hi!
    I really enjoyed the Alan Banks books. I thought the "Camaleon" books were better. I am dissapointed with the last chapters, because I thought that the end would be more exciting, but I like it because it is interesting and my favorite genere is the horror and thiller. "

    " First book I have read by this author and found it to be a good read. It was well done. The characters were interesting and the plot got your attention.
