Friend of the Devil by Peter Robinson
Friend of the Devil

joie de vivre, June 15, 2008

While generally up to the standards of other books in this series, Friend of the Devil cribs from a much earlier Peter Robinson non-Banks book, First Cut. The story of the slasher and his one surviving victim is told in that book in a slightly different form and is given more detail. Having that background, I found the new book a bit of a cop-out (no pun intended). By using plots from two of his previous books for this new book, Robinson shows some lack of imagination here. I hope he develops new crimes for any future books.
