A terrible crime. No obvious motive.
Banks is on the case.
'Top-notch police procedure' - Jeffery Deaver
A shocking mass murder occurs at a wedding in a small Dales church and a huge manhunt follows. Eventually, the shooter is run to ground and things take their inevitable course.
But Banks is plagued with doubts as to exactly what happened outside the church that day, and why. Struggling with the death of his first serious girlfriend and the return of profiler Jenny Fuller into his life, Banks feels the need to dig deeper into the murders, and as he does so, he uncovers forensic and psychological puzzles that lead him to the past secrets that might just provide the answers he is looking for.
When the surprising truth becomes clear, it is almost too late.
The mass shooting of a wedding party outside a Yorkshire church propels bestseller Robinson's intriguing but slow-burning 24th novel featuring Det. Supt. Alan Banks (after 2016's When the Music's Over). In the aftermath, three people are dead, including the bride, and two more later succumb to their wounds. Banks bristles a bit when his boss brings in a profiler, especially when he discovers that it's forensic psychologist Jenny Fuller, for whom he used to hold a torch. Together, Fuller, Banks, and Banks's lead detective, Det. Sgt. Annie Cabbot, try to paint a picture of the gunman, but even when they come up with a credible suspect, the discovery only leads to a maze of further possibilities, including motives that have their start decades earlier in connection to another crime. The reader may feel that Banks is too much on the periphery, dealing with the loss of a long-ago lover, as the complex story unfolds around him, but he's still a mighty force to be reckoned with in crime fiction.
