Peter Robinson is one of the crime world's finest stylists. This is a collection that will explore our hidden paranoia, challenge all that we take for granted, and lure us to new, exotic places - only to make us wish we could run back home, and keep us up all night just waiting for the safety of the dawn.
This is the first volume of a three-volume audio series.

Despite the odd interesting experiment ("The Duke's Wife" in Volume Three, for example, a short story of murder featuring the characters from Shakespeare's Measure for Measure) and brief interludes filling in the gaps between the Inspector Banks novels, this collection is a slightly disappointing one. The stories are frequently predictable, unlike the full-length Inspector Banks novels, and certainly not up to Robinson's usual standard.
Bit cheeky stretching the book over three audiobooks, too!
