    Many Rivers to Cross

    If you are already a fan of Peter Robinson’s Banks novels, this won’t disappoint- familiar characters and a modern plot -line -it would be helpful if some of the books preceding this have been read ,so links and references are easier to follow ,but it would work as a ‘stand alone ‘novel ,as there are some explanations of where people and incidents connect . Very enjoyable as a part of a crime series ,and as a novel.

    Many rivers to cross

    I have read the previous Banks novels and enjoyed them all. And this one was just as enjoyable if not better.

    Intriguing & Very Worthwhile

    Feel at liberty to read this as a standalone because even though it's the twenty-sixth book in the series, the author, Peter Robinson, gives enough background on everyone so that the reader will not find themselves lost. As a newish fan of British procedurals, I really enjoyed this novel. Although slow to really get going, for the most part it was an absorbing story with several unfolding threads. DCI Alan Banks and his colleagues are investigating the murder of a young thirteen-year-old Arab boy who was found stabbed and crammed into a wheelie bin. As their investigation progresses, there appears to be several different possibilities about the foul play that has occurred. Meanwhile, a friend of Banks, Zelda, an émigré from Moldova, takes a trip to London for a couple of days, where she works part-time for a government agency. Her boss has died in a fire and Zelda doesn’t believe that he would have died in the suggested circumstances so she decides to carry out a little investigating of her own. In doing so, she catches sight of an evil and extremely violent man from her past… The plot was strong and complex enough to keep me engaged and the story was filled with charms and idiosyncrasies of DCI Banks - his eclectic love of music, his eating choices, his Porsche and his colleagues. With snippets of amusing dialogue and witticisms to keep the reader entertained, this was a great piece of crime-fiction and it was well worth a read. It was nicely written and liked the way the book was concluded. Reading Many Rivers to Cross has inspired me to check out the other books by Peter Robinson and I can't wait for the next one in this series! Thank you to Peter Robinson and Pigeonhole for giving me the opportunity to read this book. This review is my own voluntary and unbiased opinion.
