Watching the Dark by Peter Robinson

Inspector Alan Banks is back again on another case.  This one is a mix between new cases and an old cold case that was never solved.  Annie is back after recovery from being shot and almost dying; she's supposed to be on light duty.  To add to Banks' problems, he now has an extra person on the case.  Unfortunately, it's an inspector from Professional Standards.  Banks isn't sure if she's checking out the victim for police corruption or if she's building a case on him.  After all, sometimes he steps on the wrong side of the law when solving cases.

William Morrow and Edelweiss allowed me to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be on the shelves on January 8th, so make a note on your TBR list.

Mr. Robinson writes a very detailed investigative search.  He includes the emotional aspects and shows that there is a tie between several illegal activities. Inspector Banks keeps trudging along, digging out facts and connecting the dots.  When he has solved the first two murders, he's still not willing to give up on the cold case file.  He's a character I find easy to admire, despite his human weaknesses.

I'll be watching for the next book in this series.  It takes me a while to read them, but they are worth the time.  Why not give this one a try and see what you think?

Happy reading.
