Gallows View Summary

Gallows View by Peter Robinson

'The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong' - Stephen King

Gallows View is the first novel in Peter Robinson's bestselling Inspector Banks series.

New Town. New Cases. New Danger.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks has recently relocated with his family from stressful London to the Yorkshire Dales, but soon finds that life in the countryside is not quite as idyllic as he had imagined.

Three cases come to the fore: a voyeur is terrorizing the women of Eastvale; two thugs are breaking into homes; and an old woman is dead, possibly murdered. As the tension mounts, Banks must also deal with his attraction to a young psychologist, Jenny Fuller - and when both Jenny and Banks's wife are drawn deeper into events, Banks realizes that his cases are weaving closer and closer together . . .

Gallows View is followed by A Dedicated Man in the Inspector Banks series.

Gallows View Reviews

If you haven't encountered Chief Inspector Alan Banks before, prepare for a crash course in taut, clean writing and subtle psychology. And watch for those twists - they'll get you every time -- Ian Rankin
The novels of Peter Robinson are chilling, evocative, deeply nuanced works of art -- Dennis Lehane
Peter Robinson is a master -- Tess Gerritsen
An author with amazing empathy, a snare trap ear for dialogue and a clear eye for the telling detail -- Michael Connelly
Peter Robinson's first, and extremely well-fashioned, police procedural. An expert plotter with an eye for telling detail, Mr. Robinson can also make acute social observations * New York Times Book Review *
