Robinson Peter

When the Music`s over

Hodder&Staughton, London 2016


 This definitely is my last Robinson novel. DCI Banks has grown old, just like his author. He exploits the actual sex scandals around media stars to develop his plot around the 80 years old Danny Paxton who in his hay days in the fifties brutally raped an under age girl. So Robinson can rekindle memories of his own youth.

Annie Cabbot investigates the brutal rape and murder of another under age girl in the present. This time a Pakistani gang is involved, so Robinson again uses an actual scandal involving a Pakistani gang in Rotherham.

Robinson`s intentions are all too clear, and the end is hardly surprising and very politically correct.
