Not Dark Yet (An Alan Banks Crime Novel) by Peter Robinson (signed hardback)
This copy of Not Dark Yet has been signed by the author, the best selling multi-award winning Yorkshire-born crime writer Peter Robinson. It's a first edition, not first printing.
The 27th outing for the redoubtable DCI Banks combines a typically engrossing plot involving a gruesome double murder and the Albanian mafia, with a chilling depiction of the desperation experienced by migrants and refugees in modern Britain.
The gruesome double murder at an Eastvale property developer's luxury home should be an open and shut case for Superintendent Banks and his team of detectives. There's a clear link to the notoriously vicious Albanian mafia, men who left the country suspiciously soon after the death. Then they find a cache of spy-cam videos hidden in the house - and Annie and Gerry's investigation pivots to the rape of a young girl that could cast the murders in an entirely different light.
Banks's friend Zelda, increasingly uncertain of her future in Britain's hostile environment, thinks she will be safer in Moldova hunting the men who abducted, raped and enslaved her than she is Yorkshire or London. Her search takes her back to the orphanage where it all began - but by stirring up the murky waters of the past, Zelda is putting herself in greater danger than any she's seen before.
And as the threat to Zelda escalates, so does the danger for Banks and those who love her . . .
