?Fans of P.D. James and Ruth Rendell . . . should look no further than Peter Robinson.??Washington Post Book World
Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that secrecy can prove fatal, and secrets were the driving force behind Caroline Hartley?s life . . . and death.
She was brutally stabbed in her own home three days prior to Christmas. Leaving her past behind for a forbidden love affair, she mystified more than a few. And now she is dead.
In this season of giving and forgiving, Banks is eager to absolve the innocent of their sins. But that must wait until the dark circle of his investigation finally closes . . . and when a killer makes the next move.
Past Reason Hated is a relentlessly suspenseful novel that shows why Peter Robinson is one of the world?s most acclaimed and popular mystery writers.
