About this item

Inspector Alan Banks - hailed as "a man for all seasons" by Michael Connelly - must face the music when he becomes embroiled in one of his most perplexing and distressing cases in this haunting page-turner from New York Times bestselling author Peter Robinson.

Two women. Two crimes.

The first is a poet claiming she was assaulted decades earlier by a man now regarded as one of the country's national treasures. The second is a girl found on a remote roadside, her body broken, her life snuffed out.

For Alan Banks, newly promoted to Detective Superintendent, the first case rips a tunnel into long-ago days of innocence and discovery, of music and light. And in the victim, he sees an opportunity for magic recaptured - if he can bring her assailant to justice.

For Detective Inspector Annie Banks, the lifeless young woman poses a baffling mystery - a mystery that will lead her into the unlikeliest of places, interviewing the unlikeliest of suspects.

Emotionally resonant and ingeniously plotted, When the Music's Over begins a new chapter for Banks - and shows Peter Robinson at his tense, triumphant best.
