New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Peter Robinson brings us a tantalizing tale of suspense in this classic Inspector Banks thriller.

In the long shadows of an alley a young man is murdered by an unknown assailant. The shattering echoes of his death will be felt throughout a small provincial community on the edge—because the victim was far from innocent, a youth whose sordid secret life was a tangle of bewildering contradictions. Now a dedicated policeman beset by his own tormenting demons must follow the leads into the darkest corners of the human mind in order to catch a killer.

Delving into the complicated human psyche, Blood at the Root showcases Peter Robinson’s singular talent in an exceptional novel of suspense that will linger in readers’ minds long past the final page.

What a book! Peter Robinson really knows his stuff about racism in Britain these days. Immigration appears to be as much a problem today as it was in the '50's. Many English people left Britain in the '50's & '60's as immigrants came in. Of course, not all immigrants fell into crime but English people somehow "felt" they were the cause of the trouble that occurred. Robinson captured the racism at its best. Interestingly, the main characters are white. What is to happen to CDI Banks now he is suspended? Now I need to read the next book to find out!
