The worst that can possibly happen … has.

A beautiful child is dead—defiled and murdered in a lonely graveyard on a fog-shrouded evening. It is the sort of horrific crime chief inspector Alan Banks fled the city to escape. But the slaying of a bright and lovely teenager from a wealthy, respected family is not the end of a nightmare. Lies, dark secrets, unholy accusations, and hints of sexual depravity swirl around this abomination like leaves in an autumn wind, leading to a shattering travesty of justice that will brutally divide a devastated community with suspicion and hatred. But Banks must remain vigilant in his hunt—because when the devil is left free to pursue his terrible calling, more blood will surely flow.

Quotes & Awards

  • "[A] painful but enlightening journey into the past.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Exquisitely complex and atmospheric.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Entertaining and sophisticated, crime writing of a high order.”

    Washington Post

  • “Langton’s main success is in capturing the many moods of the hapless Pierce—confusion, arrogance, petulance, self-pity, despair, and, eventually, fierce anger—as he faces the growing circumstantial case against him. It’s a performance that adds a punch to the book’s powerful conclusion.”

    " Deborah Harrison, a 16 year old school girl, is found strangled in the St. Mary's graveyard on a very foggy evening after a meeting of the school's chess club. Due to physical evidence of the girl's hair and blood found on his anorak, Owen Pierce is arrested and we hear his thoughts during the trial. When he is found not guilty, Owen returns to Eastvale but finds his house vandalized, he's lost his teaching job and his former friends are leery of him. Meantime, Inspector Banks decides that he needs to re-investigate Deborah's boyfriend, the scummy John Spinks, who gives him a clue he can follow up on, but not before another school girl is murdered. I enjoyed the first half of this book, but found the last third or so dragged. "

    " This is the eighth book in a fantastic series featuring protaganist Chief Inspector Banks. Its a story of the murder of a beautiful 16 year old girl and the subsequent murder of a second young girl. A man is accused of the crime and spends several months is jail awaiting his trial. The author spends half the time describing what the accused man goes through and how his life brings him to this point. His story is perfectly blended with Chief Inspector Banks' efforts to either bring in the evidence to convict this man at his trial or find another suspect. As the other books in this series, Innocent Graves is very well written and constructed. An excellent book. "
