Final Account (Mass Market Paperbound)
Impressive. . . . A dark, unsettling story. New York Times Book Review
There's more than blood and bone beneath the skin. . . .
The victim, a nondescript number cruncher, was murdered just yards away from his wife and daughter. And the crime scene is one that could chill the blood of even the most seasoned police officer.
But the strange revelations about an ordinary accountant's extraordinary secret life are what truly mystify Chief Inspector Alan Banks. Lies breed further deceptions and blood begets blood . . . and all the while a killer watches, hidden in plain sight.
Twisty, suspenseful, and thoroughly riveting, Final Account is one of Peter Robinson's best thrillers.
Inspector Banks is a man for all seasons. Michael Connelly
Peter Robinson is a master. Tess Gerritsen.
