Friends this is my review of the book “The Hanging Valley by Peter Robinson, which I read recently. When sorting out things for moving I have found that I have come across several books that I had purchased at some time in the past (often from a market stall or charity bookshop), but have never got round to reading, and this was one such book.
The hero of the book is Chief Inspector Banks, and he is given the task of solving who has murdered a faceless corpse, which has been found in a tranquil valley near Swainhead. The trouble is that no one wants to talk about it. Finally through a set of dentures the body is identified, and it seems as if this case is linked with an unsolved one from a few years ago.
Then it is a case of working through the suspects and looking at the history, which includes an excursion to Canada, to meet a lady in a British pub. The real question is can the Chief Inspector solve the crime before the next murder happens.. It is a race against time with lots of drinking along the way.
