View Profile

Alan Banks has been promoted; no longer DI Banks, he is now Detective Superintendent in the 23rd Inspector Banks novel, When the Music’s Over, by Peter Robinson.

Inspector Superintendent Alan Banks 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.

When the Music's OverThe 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.

When the Music’s Over, by Peter Robinson, is available from Dymocks.

  1. The above Review seems to getting Police Rank a tad mixed up!

    The book cover states ‘DCI Banks’, which is ‘Detective Chief Inspector’. That rank follows ‘Detective Inspector’.

    After DCI, & a substantial time at that rank, the next is ‘Superintendent’.

    Bear in mind, to achieve ANY rank, examinations’ are sat for, & must be completed successfully, before rank, or higher rank, is awarded!

  2. Think I’ll just wait until it gets filmed, as the tv series, with Stephen Tomkinson, in the lead role!
