Description

"Robinson is an author with amazing empathy, a snare-trap ear for dialogue, and a clear eye for the telling detail."—Michael Connelly

One of the world's greatest suspense writers returns with the 27th novel featuring the legendary detective Alan Banks in the mystery series Stephen King calls "the best now on the market."

When property developer Connor Clive Blaydon is found dead, Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his Yorkshire team dive into the investigation. As luck would have it, someone had installed a cache of spy-cams all around his luxurious home. The team hope that they'll find answers—and the culprit—among the video recordings.

Instead of discovering Connor's murderer, however, the grainy and blurred footage reveals another crime: a brutal rape. If they can discover the woman's identity, it could lead to more than justice for the victim; it could change everything the police think they know about Connor and why anyone would want him dead.

Meanwhile, tensions are rising between Banks and his friend, Zelda. A super recognizer—able to recognize faces significantly better than most people—Zelda is determined to bring the men who abused her to justice. But stirring up the murky waters of the past will put her in far greater danger than ever before, and Banks worries that he won't be able to stop her from plunging too deep before it's too late.

        "Not Dark Yet finds Banks at an existential crossroads. . . . The plight of Zelda, it seems, has rocked Banks's sense of himself and his career as a lawman to the core." — Wall Street Journal

        "Celebrated suspense writer Robinson returns with the latest in the long-running series starring Yorkshire DCI Alan Banks. Fans will welcome this latest Banks adventure and revel in what Michael Connelly calls Robinson's 'clear eye for the telling detail.'" Booklist on Not Dark Yet

        "Robinson pulls the reader in with deft characterizations, powerfully understated action scenes, and strong locales—while leaving space for this amateur musicologist's usual legion of song and album references... A strong addition to the Banks series that suggests tantalizing possibilities for the next installment." Kirkus on Not Dark Yet

        "Bestseller Robinson ably balances multiple plotlines in his intricate 27th novel featuring Det. Supt. Alan Banks . . . . Robinson deepens the character of Banks . . . Fans will wonder what lies ahead for his career and personal life." — Publishers Weekly on Not Dark Yet

        January 15, 2021
        Investigating the murder of a mob-tied developer and the possibly related rape of a young woman, DCI Alan Banks finds himself in the crosshairs of the Albanian Mafia. At the center of the investigation is Zelda, a sex trade survivor on whom Yorkshire's Banks developed a major crush in Many Rivers To Cross (2019)--an attraction he can't act on since she's the romantic partner of one of his best friends. Abducted at 17 from an orphanage in Moldova and horrifically abused for years, she has been using her skills as a super recognizer to help Britain's National Crime Agency track sex traffickers. But a cloud of suspicion hangs over Zelda--real name Nelia Melnic--following the unsolved murder of a Croatian trafficker who violated her and her possible involvement in another killing. While Banks looks into the murder of the developer, his female colleagues DI Annie Cabbot and DC Gerry Masterson trace the history of the rape victim until the dots between the two criminal cases connect. The plot, which also features a Banks nemesis from the past, may be one of Robinson's knottiest. Full pages are devoted to the volleying of questions about possible motives and methods and what led to a suicide. But Robinson pulls the reader in with deft characterizations, powerfully understated action scenes, and strong locales--while leaving space for this amateur musicologist's usual legion of song and album references. The title of the book is taken from a Bob Dylan song included on the mortality-obsessed album Time Out of Mind. For Robinson, it would seem, things can never get dark enough. A strong addition to the Banks series that suggests tantalizing possibilities for the next installment.

        February 15, 2021
        Celebrated suspense writer Robinson returns with the latest in the long-running series starring Yorkshire DCI Alan Banks (after Many Rivers to Cross, 2020). In between "murdering" pints of ale, Banks and his team are investigating the gruesome death of crooked property developer Connor Clive Blaydon, found disemboweled in his pool. Someone seems to have really hated this guy. When a videotape of a brutal rape committed during one of Blaydon's wild parties surfaces, the investigation broadens, and Banks' friend Zelda, a former sex slave now devoted to stopping trafficking, gets involved. Both Banks and Zelda come up against two old enemies, both of whom are now working together, and find themselves sharing a harrowing ordeal. Banks travels to London and Paris to meet with police colleagues while his team journeys around the countryside in an all-out attempt to identify the rape victim, find justice for her, and solve Blaydon's murder. Fans will welcome this latest Banks adventure and revel in what Michael Connelly calls Robinson's "clear eye for the telling detail."
