When Karen Drew is found sitting in her wheelchair staring out to sea with her throat cut, DI Annie Cabbot gets lumbered with the case. Back in Eastvale, that same morning, 19-year-old Hayley Daniels is found raped and strangled in the Maze, a tangle of narrow alleys, and DCI Alan Banks is called in. Banks finds suspects galore, while Annie seems to hit a brick wall - until she reaches a breakthrough that spins her case in a new direction. Then another incident occurs in the Maze which seems to link the two cases in a bizarre and mysterious way. And it soon becomes clear that there are two killers in their midst, and that at any moment either one might strike again.

Review:

Amazon Significant Seven, February 2008: Fans of Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie novels, and anyone who enjoyed In the Woods as much as we did, will love Peter Robinson's smart and absorbing Friend of the Devil. Be sure to set aside some time to dig in--you'll be tempted to devour it in one sitting, but this gripping and finely plotted mystery deserves to be savored. If this is your first introduction to the intrepid Inspector Alan Banks, count yourself lucky--Robinson has been crafting these award-winning police procedurals for more than two decades now, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy what Stephen King has called "the best series of British novels since the novels of Patrick O'Brian." --Daphne Durham

From the Back Cover:

Two murders . . . two towns. . . .

A woman sits in a wheelchair perched on a cliff high above the sea, her throat slit from ear to ear. . . . In a maze of narrow alleys behind a market square, a teenage girl has been murdered after a night of drunken revelries with her friends.

The seemingly senseless Cliffside killing falls to Inspector Annie Cabbot, on loan to a local police department. The terrible death of young Hayley Daniels becomes Chief Inspector Alan Banks's investigation. But shattering revelations threaten to awaken the slumbering demons of earlier, darker times, and more blood is in the offing when the two cases brutally and unexpectedly collide.

Friend of the Devil is a chilling, brilliant, and utterly mesmerizing novel of suspense.
