The more Chief Inspector Alan Banks investigates the murder of a schoolgirl in a church graveyard the less he likes the whole sordid affair. The vicar at St. Mary's has been allegedly seeking sex from his sexton; the vicar's wife has been seeking solace in a bottle and the arms of a schoolteacher; and those in and around the church aren't keen on anybody who doesn't view matters as they do. And there happens to be a few suspects who meet that description. Banks investigates a murder and finds religious and societal affairs stickier than those in the normal mystery.From the Back Cover:
“Cunningly plotted. . . . The characters have complexity and the issues range broad and deep, raising interesting moral questions about bigotry, class privilege, and the crime of being different.”—New York Times Book Review
A body is discovered in a graveyard—aboveground. It is the sort of horrific crime Chief Inspector Alan Banks fled the city to escape. But the murder of a bright teenager from a wealthy, respected family is not the end of the nightmare. Lies, dark secrets, and sinister clues swirl around this killing like leaves in an autumn wind, leading to a shattering travesty of justice that will divide a suspicious community. Yet Banks must remain vigilant in his hunt—because when the devil is left free to pursue his terrible calling, more blood will surely flow.
Electrifying and utterly addictive, Innocent Graves is one of Peter Robinson’s most chilling tales of suspense.
“Inspector Banks is a man for all seasons.”—Michael Connelly
