On a summer night, an attractive woman hurtles north in a blue Peugeot with an address in her pocket, while, back in London, a desperate man leaves a late-night phone message on his brother's answering machine. By sunrise, the woman is found in her car, shot, execution-style, through the head.

Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot arrives on the scene and discovers a slip of paper in the dead woman's pocket that bears the name of her colleague and erstwhile lover, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks. Banks, meanwhile, withdrawn after nearly dying in the fire that destroyed his home, has gone missing just when he's needed most, and has left plenty of questions behind.

As Annie struggles to determine if Banks is safe, and what role he may have played in the woman's murder, Banks himself investigates the mysterious disappearance of his estranged brother, Roy. Working from Roy's swank apartment, Banks makes the rounds to Roy's old haunts and slowly inhabits the life of his younger brother, the black sheep of the family. As the trail of clues about Roy's life and associations draws Banks into a dark circle of conspiracy and corruption, mobsters and murder, Banks suddenly realizes he's running out of time to save Roy, and by digging too deep, he may be exposing himself and his family to the same, possibly deadly, danger.

    " A good book, but maybe I have read too many by Peter Robinson because it did not have the same kick as previous ones. This one starts well - a woman is followed along the M1 motorway late one night and found the next day murdered. When the police arrive to inspect the body, they find she is carrying a note with Inspector Banks' address. Meanwhile, Banks is on leave but gets a phone call from his brother in London, asking to see him urgently. Banks travels to London but his brother is missing. While the police if Yorkshire are unsuccessfully trying to find Banks to question him about the murdered woman, he is desparately trying to find his brother. Much of the story takes place in London rather than in his usual haunts in Yorkshire. It has enough suspense and mystery to keep your interest. "

    " This is the 15th book in the series, but you can still read it if you haven't read the rest (though now I do want to go back and read his others). Robinson writes great police procedurals. "

    " Just of late Banks has been investigating cases that are very personal. Still recovering from the fire which destroyed his cottage Banks finds himself embroiled in the murky world that is his brother Roy's life, juggling the responsibilities of his job and trying to protect his parents although Roy was the black sheep of the family to Banks he was the apple of their eye to his parents. It was a little bit of stretch for me but I managed to fully immerse myself into this one as it was coming so close on another highly personal case. I feel it is time for Banks to get back to being a detective and working with his colleagues as a co-operative effort. However, despite this I really enjoyed reading the story and it gets full marks from me. "
