The Newest Inspector Banks

Finished September 30
Friend of the Devil by Peter Robinson
The latest in the series featuring Inspector Alan Banks does not disappoint. DI Annie Cabbot is on loan to Eastern and has a difficult murder case before her. Not only lacking in suspects, she has to dig for information on the quadriplegic victim as well.
Banks has the case of a young woman brutally raped and murdered. Is she, as one of his officers believes, the first in a series? Was it targeted, or just opportunistic? There are many questions, and the case doesn't get easier when there is a second murder victim in the same area a week later.
As always, this case includes windows into the personal lives of Banks and Cabbot, their relationship with each other as well as other relationships. Annie is still unsure of what she really wants, and she doesn't always trust her own reactions.
As good as ever, and keeps you reading.
