Two women, two crimes. The first is a put claiming she was assaulted decades earlier by a man now regarded as one of the country's national treasures. And 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.

"Simon Prebble's understated narration of Robinson's dark, thought-provoking mystery demonstrates how vital the right choice of narrator is to a successful audiobook. In this latest series title, Inspector Banks investigates a 50-year-old rape charge while his young DI, Annie Cabot, delves into the recent savage murder of a teenaged girl. Solving these crimes requires that the investigators, and listeners, face the horrid consequences of some of society's worst failings. The subject matter is carefully handled, but unsettling. Prebble's steady tones and soothing accent reduce the drama, allowing listeners to appreciate the nuanced characters and complex plot of this riveting police procedural. Prebble's masterful delivery of this well-written story offers an audio experience with appeal far beyond established Inspector Banks fans. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
