Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Peter Robinson pulls together far-flung story lines into a seamless plot full of twists and surprises.” Chicago Tribune
“Superbly crafted…One of the year’s best books.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“An outstanding tale of deception and murder…Robinson writes eminently readable and engrossing tales which never seem to last long enough.” Denver Rocky Mountain News
“Displays a darker, more urban Banks, and ventures into dangerous areas of sexuality and trust, as well as family relationships of different types and on different levels.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“Exhilarating…[a] tour de force…a satisfyingly complex story, freshened by psychological resonance and written in Robinson’s usual elegant style…This is new and absorbing territory for Robinson to explore.” Toronto Star
“As tragic and complex as a Shakespearean drama, Cold Is the Grave is a brilliant tour de force. Robinson begins by telling a straightforward mystery that slowly evolves into a compelling work examining human emotions, ideals, and beliefs.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“[Robinson] again expands the boundaries of the traditional English village with…canny exploration of contemporary evil and his wry characterization of a detective who remains a mystery to himself…[in] a cunningly constructed plot, enhanced by Robinson’s engaging descriptions and insights.” Booklist
“Fans of British police procedurals who have not yet discovered Robinson are in for a treat. His Inspector Banks series combine intricate, intriguing plots with complex characters and bleakly beautiful Yorkshire settings…Once Banks begins his search into London’s seamy underbelly, all doubts are suspended, and the reader is hooked. A great read for those dark and stormy night.” Library Journal
“Banks can’t help finding sharply nuanced pain, hard-won wisdom, and moral complexity everywhere he looks—at suspects, at victims, even in the mirror. The result is mystery-mongering at once as sensitive and grandly scaled as P. D. James’.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
