The best series now on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong.-- "Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author, praise for the series"
As usual, Robinson provides a solid police procedural enhanced by the rugged Yorkshire setting. Banks himself-jazz- and solitude-loving, difficult, somewhat melancholic, unlucky in love-is always fascinating...For series fans, this one is a sure bet.-- "Booklist"
Engrossing...Those who enjoy methodical police procedurals that build to a logical, satisfying conclusion will be amply rewarded.-- "Publishers Weekly"
