Summary

The 27th book in the number one best-selling Alan Banks crime series - by the master of the police procedural.

The gruesome double murder at an Eastvale property developer's luxury home should be an open and shut case for Superintendent Banks and his team of detectives. There's a clear link to the notoriously vicious Albanian mafia, men who left the country suspiciously soon after the death. Then they find a cache of spy-cam videos hidden in the house - and Annie and Gerry's investigation pivots to the rape of a young girl that could cast the murders in an entirely different light.

Banks's friend Zelda, increasingly uncertain of her future in Britain's hostile environment, thinks she will be safer in Moldova hunting the men who abducted, raped and enslaved her than she is Yorkshire or London. Her search takes her back to the orphanage where it all began - but by stirring up the murky waters of the past, Zelda is putting herself in greater danger than any she's seen before.   

And as the threat to Zelda escalates, so does the danger for Banks and those who love her....

Best so far.

I have followed Banks for years and enjoyed many this resolves the last one and shows such a broad spectrum of characters ,highlights many aspects of the police in the UK and yet the power throughout Europe of the Croatian / Serbian disaster and its impact on so many lives.
Lovely touches with French episode and the end of Brian’s band,I feared it might be the end of Allan Banks

A novel of two halves

I've read all the Banks novels. The previous one was disappointing so I was apprehensive about this continuation. Initially this seemed justified as the story dragged, laden with numerous characters, mostly eastern European baddies. For me it got interesting from the abduction. I enjoyed the second half and the resolution. Not everything was tied up, but that was fine, as long as it's not revisited.
Perhaps it's time Banks retired. A return of Winstone might resuscitate the series.
