Description

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.

Contributor Notes

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.

Editorial Review

Praise for Peter Robinson:
“Peter Robinson … is one of the genre’s most talented short fiction authors.”
The Globe and Mail

“Peter Robinson is an undisputed leader in the field.”
— Montreal Gazette

“Peter Robinson is one of the most reliable names around. . . His writing has the confidence that
is commensurate with the best.”
— Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

“Nobody covers the ground quite like Robinson does. His storytelling is all about the conflicts of life…. It is this warts-and-all portrayal of lives on the brink that makes Robinson among the best there is in modern crime fiction.”
Edmonton Journal
