2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Peter Robinson’s consistently bestselling DCI Banks series, so it is only fitting that we celebrate the occasion with a visit from Peter to discuss the latest in the series, Sleeping in the Ground.

Alan Banks (now Detective Superintendent) becomes embroiled in another shocking case as a horrific mass murder is committed at a wedding. When the main suspect is himself found dead, suicide is the natural assumed conclusion. However, the deeper the unsettled Banks digs into murky past waters, the wider the case appears to creep back open…

This is a thoroughly accomplished and reflective novel, as Banks seeks to evaluate his personal and professional life over the course of his long career, and is a wonderfully appropriate tribute to a character which has truly stood the test of time over the decades. We’re delighted to welcome one of Britain’s most treasured crime writers back to St Andrews.
