When the body of a teenage boy is found stuffed into a wheely bin on the East Side Estate, Banks and Annie have a homegrown murder case to solve. But Banks's attention is also on Zelda, who in helping him track down his old enemy, has put herself in danger and alerted the stonecold Eastern Europea sex traffickers who brought her to the UK.

This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. - Daily Mail

The master of the police procedural. - Mail on Sunday

Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. - Guardian

Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. - S Magazine
