Not Dark Yet: A DCI Banks Novel

Peter Robinson. Morrow, $28.99 (336p) ISBN 978-0-06-299495-0
Bestseller Robinson ably balances multiple plotlines in his intricate 27th novel featuring Det. Supt. Alan Banks (after 2020’s Many Rivers to Cross). Banks’s police consultant friend Zelda, who has developed a database of sex traffickers in her job at Britain’s National Crime Agency, has returned to Chisinau, Moldova, in search of the director of the orphanage where she resided until the director sold her, at 17, to sex trafficker brothers Goran and Petar Tadic. A decade later, in France, she killed Goran and escaped to London. The tension rises when Petar, eager to avenge his brother’s murder, kidnaps Zelda, and Banks investigates. Meanwhile, Banks’s dedicated team, Det. Insp. Annie Cabbot and Det. Constable Gerry Masterson, seek the victim and perpetrator of a rape caught on a blurry video at a party given by a crooked property developer. Annie and Gerry’s investigation intersects credibly with Zelda’s case, and Robinson deepens the character of Banks, who is increasingly disillusioned with his police work and resentful of its emotional toll. Fans will wonder what lies ahead for his career and personal life. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary. (Mar.)
