Past Reason Hated

Krimi von Peter Robinson

It should have been a cosy scene – log fire, sheepskin rug, Vivaldi on the stereo, Christmas lights and tree. But appearances can be deceptive. For Caroline Hartley, lying quietly on the couch, has been brutally murdered. Inspector Alan Banks is called to the grim scene. And he soon has more suspects than he ever imagined.

Band 5 der Serie. “Not the sort of lifestyle that one would expect in the Yorkshire Dales. A busy Christmas for Alan Banks but his open mind and excellent powers of reason lead him to a successful conclusion. Another good mystery.” (Leser) (325 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 417 Seiten noch günstig?

Band 6 der Serie. “The characters were real, a good British detective story and not the wise cracking American style that I get bored of very quickly. There are 2 plots running through the book which eventually tie up.” (Leserin) (511 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 353 Seiten noch günstig?

But Inspector Alan Banks soon realizes that the truth is rarely so straightforward … Jason was a member of the Albion League, a white power organization. And there are many people who might have wished him dead: the Pakistani youths he had insulted in the pub that evening; the shady friends of his business partner; or someone within the Albion League itself.
