A dozen of the very best mystery stories from crime-fiction's maestro, including one brand new Inspector Banks story. Best known -- and much admired -- for his long-running and bestselling Inspector Banks series, Peter Robinson is also widely and highly praised by mystery mavens for his riveting short stories. Robinson's versatile talent is on full display in the twelve stories that comprise his latest short story collection,The Price of Love and Other Stories. Spellbinding plots, suspense that grips and won't let go, utterly unpredictable twists, psychological truths both sweet and scary, characters you'd like to meet (and some you'd hope never to encounter), all set in places that are characters themselves -- these are the fundamentals of story and mystery that Robinson plays like the virtuoso he is.

I'm not a big fan of short stories or novellas but I really enjoyed this book. It was great to read about Banks earlier love intererst. This is a must read for all Alan Banks fans.

I love the Inspector Banks series, and didn't know what to expect with this collection of short stories. It's great! The stories are set in a variety of places and eras, and each has something unexpected. Recommended for anyone who loves a great story.
