Published in the United Kingdom and Canada as Abattoir Blues Louise Penny calls In the Dark Places "brilliant." Tess Gerritsen says it's "thrilling." And Michael Connelly describes Peter Robinson as "amazing." One of the world's greatest suspense writers returns with this sensational new novel featuring Inspector Alan Banks, hailed by Michael Connelly as "a man for all seasons." It's a double mystery: Two young men have vanished, and the investigation leads to two troubling clues in two different locations. As Banks and his team scramble for answers, the inquiry takes an even darker turn when a truck careens off an icy road in a freak hailstorm. In the wreckage, rescuers find the driver, who was killed on impact, as well as another body-a body that was dead well before the crash. Snow falls. The body count rises. And Banks, perceptive and curious as ever, feels himself being drawn deeper into a web of crime, and at its center something-or someone-dark and dangerous lying in wait. Vibrating with tension, ingeniously plotted, and filled with soul and poignancy, In the Dark Places is a remarkable achievement from this masterful talent.

"This dark police procedural is set against the backdrop of a bleak early spring in the north of England. The investigation of a theft takes a turn with the disappearance of two persons of interest. Simon Prebble narrates at a controlled pace, allowing the plot, with its often gruesome twists, to unfold naturally. Introducing listeners to a wide cast of characters, including male and female officers and various suspects and witnesses, Prebble employs gentle characterizations. At times, his approach may be a little too subtle to keep track of the many key players with ease. But, overall, his narration conjures the sense of urgency and desperation of the investigators and helps build suspense. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
