“The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series now on the market.”

—Stephen King


Peter Robinson is one of the very best in the crime fiction business—a teller of dark police tales who stands firmly in the bestseller ranks alongside Ian Rankin and Elizabeth George. In All the Colors of Darkness, the maestro whose masterworks Janet Maslin of the New York Times compares to “the masculine, brooding work of Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, George Pelecanos, and Jonathan Kellerman,” brings back his unforgettable series characters Yorkshire Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot. A gripping story with echoes of Shakespeare’s Othello set in our contemporary age of terrorist fears, All the Colors of Darkness supports the Miami Herald’s contention that “it’s a crime if you miss [this] author.”

display_description Detectives Alan Banks and Annie Cabbot return in another electrifying novel from the acclaimed award-winning author of the New York Times bestseller Friend of the Devil When the body of a man is discovered hanging from a tree in the woods near Eastvale, all signs point toward suicide. At least that's what it initially looks like to Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot. The man is soon identified as Mark Hardcastle, the set and costume designer for the local amateur theater company. Mark was successful and well liked in the community, but enough remains mysterious about his background that suicide isn't completely out of the question. But when Mark's older and wealthier lover is discovered bludgeoned to death in his home, Annie begins to think differently. Could it have been a crime of passion, or did overwhelming grief lead to a man taking his own life? Increasingly confounded, she calls in the vacationing Chief Inspector Alan Banks-even if it means prying him away from his new girlfriend. Once on the investigation, Banks finds himself plunged into a case where nothing is as it seems. More and more his own words about the victim's latest production, Othello, are coming back to haunt him, for "jealousy, betrayal, envy, ambition, greed, lust, revenge-all the colors of darkness" are quickly becoming his world as well.
