Description


From the New York Times bestselling author comes a riveting collection of short fiction, marked by the piercing psychological insight and brilliant characterization that are hallmarks of his acclaimed novels.

Ever since the publication of his first mystery featuring Detective Inspector Alan Banks, Peter Robinson has been steadily building a reputation for compulsively readable and perceptive novels that probe the dark side of human nature. Plumbing the territory that his work has so successfully staked, The Price of Love and Other Stories includes two novellas and several stories featuring the Yorkshire policeman at his finest. In these stories, the disparate motives that move humans to harm one another, from love and jealousy to greed and despair, are all explored with fascinating depth.

Praise For…


“Outstanding story collection....Banks fans will be delighted....An excellent introduction to one of the best voices in contemporary crime fiction.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This collection distinguishes itself from recent crime anthologies....The final novella is a deeply satisfying procedural.”
-Library Journal

“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.”
-Globe and Mail (Toronto)
