Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Intimate…suspenseful…and satisfying in its resolutions.”

 —Los Angeles Times

 

“An extremely well-fashioned police procedural.”
—New York Times Book Review

 

Gallows View is the critically acclaimed thriller that first introduced the world to Yorkshire Chief Inspector Alan Banks—and the rest is history. Internationally bestselling author Peter Robinson dazzles with this story of the police hunt for a small-town Peeping Tom, and the fear engendered when his nocturnal escapades appear to turn deadly. Janet Maslin in the New York Times compared Peter Robinsons novels to “the masculine, brooding work of Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, George P. Pelecanos and Jonathan Kellerman,” and Dennis Lehane himself calls them, “chilling, evocative, deeply nuanced works of art.” Visit Gallows View and see what everyones raving about.

Synopsis:

Former London policeman Alan Banks relocated to Yorkshire seeking some small measure of peace. But depravity and violence are not unique to large cities. His new venue, the quaint little village of Eastvale, seems to have more than its fair share of malefactors, among them a brazen Peeping Tom who hides in night's shadows spying on attractive, unsuspecting ladies as they prepare for bed. And when an elderly woman is found brutally slain in her home, Chief Inspector Banks wonders if the voyeur has increased the intensity of his criminal activities. But whether related or not, perverse local acts and murderous ones are combining to profoundly touch Banks's suddenly vulnerable personal life, forcing a dedicated law officer to make hard choices he'd dearly hoped would never be necessary.
