It s been nearly a year since I read the previous book in the Banks series, and at the rate I m going, I will remain over twenty years behind Remarkably, Robinson is still writing new ones, he s up to book 25 so I definitely need to catch up a bit.This 9th book, alternatively titled Dead Right, is where everything changes for DCI Banks, but also takes into the dark realm of the far right movement.A young man has been found stomped to death in an alley in Eastvale after a night out in the pub It s been nearly a year since I read the previous book in the Banks series, and at the rate I m going, I will remain over twenty years behind Remarkably, Robinson is still writing new ones, he s up to book 25 so I definitely need to catch up a bit.This 9th book, alternatively titled Dead Right, is where everything changes for DCI Banks, but also takes into the dark realm of the far right movement.A young man has been found stomped to death in an alley in Eastvale after a night out in the pub, where he had an altercation with a youth from the local Asian community The victim is discover...
