The Price of Love and Other Stories (Hardcover)
The award-winning author of the New York Times bestselling Inspector Alan Banks novels, Peter Robinson dazzles with his first collection of short fiction, The Price of Love and Other Stories. Marked by the piercing psychological insight, brilliant characterization, and riveting suspense that are the hallmarks of Robinson's fiction, The Price of Love gives us ten remarkable tales--two of which feature Robinson's inimitable Yorkshire police detective Alan Banks--as well as a stunning pair of new Banks novellas. The Price of Love is a bravura demonstration of the exceptional storytelling skill that has made critics, mystery lovers, and famous literary peers the world over--including Dennis Lehane and Stephen King--fervent Peter Robinson fans.
“The writing is, as always with Robinson, colorful and evocative, and the characters are brilliant in their unpersonable way. This book is a must for Peter Robinson completists, of course, but also for anyone who appreciates good stories well told.”
