PerfectBound e-book extra: Enter the World of Peter Robinson
The crime scene awaiting Acting Detective Superintendent Alan
Banks is among the worst he has ever encountered. The assailant,
Terence Payne, hovers close to death himself. And Payne's
brutalized wife, Lucy -- whose overheard screams prompted the
original call -- has already been moved to a local hospital for
treatment. But these sins and tragedies pale before what else has
transpired in a dank basement the press will soon dub the "House of
Payne." Now that the fiend is in custody, the long nightmare
appears over at last."But is it?" In Alan Banks's mind too many
questions need to be answered before he can rest easy. How could
the heinous crimes of a popular teacher like Payne have so
completely escaped the notice of his peers, his neighbors...his
wife? And was fragile, abused Lucy Payne a victim or a reluctant
accomplice?Despite the strain on his own personal life and
relationships, Banks refuses to ease up on his investigation.
Buried deep in the past are shards of irony, pity, and horror
almost too painful to bear, and unspeakable betrayals that deformed
more than one childhood. For Banks, for his lover, Annie Cabot --
who suspects heartless political forces are setting her up to
destroy a life -- and for the beautiful consulting psychologist Dr.
Jenny Fuller, there is much more that must be unearthed in the
aftermath of abomination. Because the darkness has not yet lifted,
and new casualties are mounting. And there are still monsters loose
in the world...
