Publisher's Summary

The Hanging Valley is the fourth novel in Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series, following on from A Necessary End

A faceless corpse is discovered in a tranquil, hidden valley below the village of Swainshead. And when Chief Inspector Alan Banks arrives, he finds that no-one is willing to talk. Banks' frustration only grows when the identity of the body is revealed. For it seems that his latest case may be connected with an unsolved murder in the same area five years ago. 

Among the silent suspects are the Collier brothers, the wealthiest and most powerful family in the area. When they start using their influence to slow down the investigation, Banks finds himself in a race against time....

not as good as previous books

I didn't enjoy this as much as previous books, the culprit was fairly obvious. Also the ending was very abrupt and unsatisfying.

it was well read however.

Always Enjoyable

I have all these books in paperback but I still like to listen to these books . The narration is very good but my only criticism would be the ending. I won't spoil it for future listeners but it wasn't ( even when I first read the book ) the ending I had expected but then again does that make a good story. Still a very good listen....... you decide !

Good story, annoying accent

I'm loving the DCI Banks stories, but being from Yorkshire I'm constantly irritated by the narrators Yorkshire accent. It's very good generally but he keeps throwing in extra 'tut's. We're off to 'tut' shops, watching 'tut' television! 😂😂😂

Love this series. Not this book.

Narrator is good as always but, I was disappointed with this book. The story seemed a little haphazard and didn't have a definitive ending with a complete explanation. Poorest one I have listened to so far.

can't get enough

I absolutely love this series of books. can't wait to start the next one. I would highly recommend to any readers who love a detective story with lots of twists and turns. I especially loved how this one ended! brilliant
