Sleeping in the GroundBook - 2017
In the wake of a massacre outside a picturesque Yorkshire church, Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his team are challenged to unravel a baffling mystery involving a killer who is hiding in plain sight. By the Edgar Award-winning author of When the Music's Over. 75,000 first printing.
MICHAEL CONNELLY calls Peter Robinson "an author with amazing empathy, a snare-trap ear for dialogue, and a clear eye for the telling detail."
See why in Sleeping in the Ground, the gripping new novel starring Alan Banks — featuring an opening scene you'll never forget, and a finale you won't see coming.
At the doors of a charming country church, an unspeakable act destroys a wedding party. A huge manhunt ensues. The culprit is captured. The story is over.
Except it isn't. For Alan Banks, still struggling with a tragic loss of his own, there's something wrong about this case — something unresolved. Reteaming with profiler Jenny Fuller, the relentless detective deeper into the crime... deep enough to unearth long-buried secrets that reshape everything Banks thought he knew about the events outside that chapel.
And when at last the shocking truth becomes clear, it's almost too late.
Packed with twists and turns, heart and soul, this is another triumph from an author "at the top of his game" (LOUISE PENNY).
