Close to Home

Peter Robinson: Close to Home (USA 2004)

From the Publisher:
There are human bones buried in an open field, the remains of a lost teenaged boy whose disappearance devastated a community more than thirty-five years ago... and scarred a guilt-ridden friend forever.

A long-hidden horror has been unearthed, dragging a tormented policeman back into a past he could never truly forget no matter how desperately he tried. A heinous crime that occurred too close to home still has its grip on Chief Inspector Alan Banks -- and it's leading him into a dark place where evil still dwells. Because the secrets that doomed young Graham Marshall back in 1965 remain alive and lethal -- and disturbing them could cost Banks much more than he ever imagined.

Peter Robinson: Close to Home. A Novel of Suspense. Avon Books, ISBN: 0061031097 (February, 2004), 451 p., $7.50.

Close to Home

Peter Robinson: Close to Home (USA 2003)

From the Publisher:
A pair of unconscionable deaths separated by miles and years threatens to bring to light shocking revelations that could destroy careers, reputations, cherished myths, and fragile lives. And the terrible truths that lie buried in a mire of betrayal and deception could prove equally devastating to the living and the memory of the dead.

1965. Winston Churchill's funeral. Carnaby Street. The Moors murders. The first U.S. space walk. Help! Mods and rockers. Emma Peel and The Avengers. It was a time of possibility, of hope for the future, the fulcrum point of the sixties. Alan Banks was a teenager on the precipice of manhood with little on his mind but girls and music. Until the day his best friend, Graham, vanished.

For more than thirty-five years, Banks has not forgiven himself for having possibly caused the disappearance and presumed death of Graham that summer. Now a detective chief inspector in Yorkshire, he is consumed by a job that threatens to send him over the edge with its conflicting demands, its proximity to violent death and all that is worst in people. Banks is at an emotional crossroads when, shockingly, brittle bones are unearthed in his childhood town. Identified as Graham's remains, the imagined skeleton in the detective's closet is now all too real. Plummeted back into a past he thought he'd overcome, tormented by guilt over his failure to prevent his best friend's murder so many years ago, Banks is drawn into an investigation that hits dangerously close to home.

To Bank's horror, history seemingly repeats itself when a troubled young man, the privileged son of a deceased music legend, goes missing and is presumed dead. Working between the two cases, Banks must draw on all his instincts, his experience, and his memories to find the truth - and lay two innocents to rest.
