The twenty-second novel in Number One bestselling author Peter Robinson’s critically acclaimed DCI Banks series.

When two boys vanish under mysterious circumstances, the local community is filled with unease. And when a caravan belonging to one of the youths is burned to the ground, and a bloodstain is discovered in a disused World War Two hangar nearby, things quickly become much more sinister.

Assigned to the case, DCI Banks and his team are baffled by the mystery laid out before them. But when a motor accident throws up a gruesome discovery, the investigation spins into a higher gear – and in another direction. As Banks and his team struggle desperately to find the missing boy who holds the key to the puzzle, they find themselves in a race against time where it’s their turn to become the prey . . .

Reviews

[Peter Robinson deserves a place] near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league
The Times
It's neither the setting nor even the characters that makes Robinson's work so satisfying, but the plotting of Swiss-watch precision
Independent
Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation
Observer
As always with the excellent DCI Alan Banks novels, you can expect the story to grip you from beginning to end.
Choice
A real page-turner that confirms Robinson as a master of crime fiction.
