Detective Chief Inspector Banks is very surprised when his boss, Chief Superintendent Riddle asks for his help - because it is well known how much Riddle detests him. Riddle's wayward 16-year old daughter, Emily has run away from home and he needs Banks and his unorthodox methods to bring her back without disruption.

Banks tracks Emily to London, where she is living with a south London gangster whose business connections Banks has already been investigating. She refuses to return to her 'parochial' home but when she turns up at Bank's hotel in the middle of the night beaten and scared, he is pulled deeper into events. Especially when three months later - supposedly safely home with her family - Emily suffers a gruesome and suspicious death...

Cold is the Grave

Peter Robinson: Cold is the Grave (USA 2000)

From the Publisher:
In recent years, the career of Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks has been stalled - and, in fact, very nearly destroyed - by the petty animosities of his politically ambitious senior officer Chief Constable Jeremiah "Jimmy" Riddle. But when nude pictures of Riddle's runaway teenage daughter show up on a pornographic website, he turns to Banks for help.

The trail first leads Banks to London's Soho and then to Little Venice, where Emily Riddle is living with a dangerous gangster with ties to the world of rock music. At first refusing to go home, Emily later turns up at Banks's hotel, bruised and frightened and asking for his help. Soon she is back with her family in Yorkshire, and Banks's work appears to be done.

A gruesome murder occurs in a popular Eastvale club, filling the national tabloids with headlines that scream of scandal, sex, and high-level corruption. It is a cold and savage homicide that shakes Alan Banks to his very core and leads to shocking revelations that suggest the Courage affair is somehow linked to something much closer to home. And now the grim discoveries of his unfolding investigation are leading Banks in a direction he does not wish to go: into the past and private world of his most powerful enemy, Chief Constable Riddle.

Peter Robinson: Cold is the Grave. A Novel of Suspense. William Morrow, ISBN: 0380978083 (October, 2000), 369 p., $24.00.
