Many Rivers to Cross Summary


Many Rivers to Cross: DCI Banks 26 by Peter Robinson

The 26th instalment of the Number One bestselling series

'The master of the police procedural' Mail on Sunday
'The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong' Stephen King

***

A skinny young boy is found dead - his body carelessly stuffed into wheelie bin.

Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his team are called to investigate. Who is the boy, and where did he come from? Was he discarded as rubbish, or left as a warning to someone? He looks Middle Eastern, but no one on the East Side Estate has seen him before.

As the local press seize upon an illegal immigrant angle, and the national media the story of another stabbing, the police are called to investigate a less newsworthy death: a middle-aged heroin addict found dead of an overdose in another estate, scheduled for redevelopment.

Banks finds the threads of each case seem to be connected to the other, and to the dark side of organised crime in Eastvale. Does another thread link to his friend Zelda, who is facing her own dark side?

The truth may be more complex - or much simpler - than it seems . . .

Many Rivers to Cross Reviews


Praise for the DCI Banks series * : *
Near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league. * Times *
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. -- Stephen King
This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. * Daily Mail *
The master of the police procedural. * Mail on Sunday *
Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. * Guardian *
Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. * S Magazine *
Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death * On Yorkshire Magazine *
Robinson also has a way of undercutting the genre's familiarity. With a deceptively unspectacular language, he sets about the process of unsettling the reader. * Independent *
Banks is up against people tra?cking, racism, drug dealing and murder, in this un?inchingly tough case. It kicks o? with the discovery of a Middle Eastern boy's body stu?ed in a wheelie bin and twists and shocks from there * Peterborough Telegraph *
