In Edgar Award–nominated Robinson's 1991 book, the first in a series featuring British inspector Alan Banks, readers meet Banks as he moves to Yorkshire seeking peace of mind. His retirement is short-lived as a contemporary Jack the Ripper begins prowling the countryside. Mark Honan delivers a powerful and affecting performance that will make Banks a favorite for years to come. Honan's stage presence and pitch-perfect dialect compose a stirring atmosphere filled with all sorts of odd occurrences and evil events. A truly compelling listen. An Avon paperback. (Aug.)
