What to expect

The thrilling twenty-fifth instalment in Peter Robinson’s Number One bestselling Banks series, in which Banks and his team find themselves with two suspicious deaths.

A young local student has apparently committed suicide. Her body is found in an abandoned car on a lonely country road. She didn’t own a car. Didn’t even drive. How did she get there? Where did she die? Who moved her, and why?

Meanwhile a man in his sixties is found dead in a gully up on the wild moorland. He is wearing an expensive suit and carrying no identification. Post-mortem findings indicate he died from injuries sustained during the fall. But what was he doing up there? And why are there no signs of a car in the vicinity?

As the inconsistencies multiply and the mysteries proliferate, Annie’s father’s new partner, Zelda, comes up with a shocking piece of information that alerts Banks and Annie to the return of an old enemy in a new guise. This is someone who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get what he wants – and suddenly the stakes are raised and the hunt is on.

Critics Review

  • Praise for Careless Love

  • This is vintage Banks – a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero’s intuition and charm.

    Daily Mail
  • Robinson remains the master of the police procedural.

    Mail on Sunday
  • Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes.

  • Banks’ slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series’ warmth makes you feel all’s right with the world.

    S Magazine
  • A fast-paced and ingenious story
