Two suspicious deaths in as many days, seemingly unrelated, have Leeds DCI Alan Banks and his team working to find out what happened to the deceased. The first victim, a university student dressed for an evening out, is discovered in a car that was involved in an accident investigated days before by the police. The second body, that of a London financier, is retrieved from the bottom of a ravine, dead from a broken neck, but clad in a business suit rather than hiking clothes. There is nothing that links the two deaths until Banks and his colleagues start asking questions and a third body, obviously murdered this time, turns up.
VERDICT Robinson fans will enjoy the latest entry (after Sleeping in the Ground) in this long-running series. First-time readers will be motivated to seek out the previous titles. Well-written and believable, with recognizable but multifaceted characters and enough twists to keep the story riveting until the mystery is solved. [See Prepub Alert, 8/10/18.]
