Wednesday's child is full of woe.... It was a crime of staggering inhumanity: a seven-year-old girl taken from her home right in front of her desperate working-class mother. With each passing moment, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks realizes that the child's death becomes more and more likely. But there are worse fates than death in a nightmare world of human monsters and their twisted games. And the grisly discovery of a young man slain in a particularly savage fashion only starts the clock ticking faster, drawing Banks into the sordid depths of an evil more terrible and terrifying than anything he has ever encountered.

    " The emotional core of the story, Gemma, got short shrift in a rushed ending. Still this was a solid Banksian tale. Having read some slightly out of order, I've found these pre-Annie Cabbot stories a bit flatter, but a good read all around. "

    " This is an Inspector Banks story and very good because it ends well. A little girl is taken in a bizarre way from her mother, there's a robbery of a warehouse, a man ends up dead in a grizzly way, and do all these things connect or are they separate crimes??? That is the question. In his own way of out of the box thinking Inspector Banks keeps slogging along and finding more unattached evidence and then he sees the picture. "

    " Love these Inspector Banks books but I must say that I don't think that this one was as good as the others. "

    " Seven year old Gemma's incredibly stupid and slatternly mother gives her child to two people who say they are from child protective services and are investigating "abuse" allegations. They promise to return her the next morning. However, she is "busy" and doesn't get around to calling the police until late in the day. Then a body of a young man turns up in an abandoned lead mine. The two don't seem to be related. Peter Robinson is one of the authors who is at the top of my crime-reading list. One article I read said that he is underrated. He truly is. He writes so incredibly well - clearly and with warmth and intelligence. This book is often said to be his finest. It certainly is a fascinating look into what people will do to satisfy their emotional needs. Don't miss this one! "
