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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dead Right= Blood at the Root BE WARNED!! This is a reprint by the new publishers of Peter Robinson. The original book was called Dead Right (1997)- which was very good- however I felt cheated when I bought Blood at the Root and recognized the first few pages. If you haven't read either book, then you're fine. Otherwise, its a cheat.
