"..a good introduction to those new to Peter Robinson's writing."
This collection of short stories show the range of Peter Robinson's work. Each story has appeared in an anthology elsewhere, with the exception of Like a Virgin which was written especially for this book. The stories that do not feature DI Banks, Robinson's popular detective, are set in a variety of places and periods. They include a Toronto noir story, originally published in instalments and a tale of extra-marital skulduggery where fidelity is a dirty word.
The Banks stories are a mix of classic Banks crime and a more reflective tale of a potential suicide. The final novella turns to Banks' roots and describes the case that ended his career in the Metropolitan police and took him to Eastvale in Yorkshire.
