A dozen of the very best mystery stories from crime-fiction’s maestro, including one brand new Inspector Banks story.
Best known — and much admired — for his long-running and bestselling Inspector Banks series, Peter Robinson is also widely and highly praised by mystery mavens for his riveting short stories.
Robinson’s versatile talent is on full display in the twelve stories that comprise his latest short story collection, The Price of Love and Other Stories. Spellbinding plots, suspense that grips and won’t let go, utterly unpredictable twists, psychological truths both sweet and scary, characters you’d like to meet (and some you’d hope never to encounter), all set in places that are characters themselves — these are the fundamentals of story and mystery that Robinson plays like the virtuoso he is.
Yorkshire-born Peter Robinson is the author of the Inspector Banks series, which has been nominated for or won numerous awards, including the Edgar Award, the Dagger in the Library Award, the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière, the Palle Rosenkrantz Award, and several Arthur Ellis best novel awards. He splits his time between Toronto and Yorkshire.
