Publisher's Summary

When the body of a young girl is found in a remote countryside lane, evidence suggests she was drugged, abused and thrown from a moving van - before being beaten to death. While DI Annie Cabbot investigates the circumstances in which a 14-year-old could possibly fall victim to such a crime, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Alan Banks must do the same - but the crime Banks is investigating is the coldest of cases.

Fifty years ago Linda Palmer was attacked by celebrity entertainer Danny Caxton, yet no investigation ever took place. Now Caxton stands accused at the centre of a historical abuse investigation, and it's Banks' first task as superintendent to find out the truth. As more women step forward with accounts of Caxton's manipulation, Banks must piece together decades-old evidence.

With his investigation uncovering things from the past that would rather stay hidden, he will be led down a path even darker than the one he set out to investigate....

    "cracking, pacey murder mystery"

    Good plot and well drawn characters. I enjoyed listening to this.
    Very contempoary themes regarding the tensions between immigrant cultures.

    "Enjoyable, but questionable narration at times"

    A good thriller in keeping with Peter Robinson's usual style. Different story lines run separately throughout. I didn't find the usual amount of in depth character development for Banks this time although the story was gripping. I'm unsure of the narration of this audiobook, particularly at the beginning, sentences seem a bit disjointed at times but this improves and is worth persevering - I'm not sure if it's a technical issue or bizarre editing.

    "parallel lines"

    Good narration. Sometimes a little too much description which did not seem to add to the story for me. overall the plot was good anď parallel threads added to interest.

    "Good (but not great) storyline spoils by a bad reading"

    I quite liked the two-pronged story but I felt it did just fissile out in the end. This is my first book Peter Robinson and I would consider the next one in the series but only if they changed Simon Slater. His reading really annoyed me in places as he seems to stop reading in mid sentence only to carry on and his annunciation is truly awful in places. Sorry to be so negative but there are much better books in this genre so I would give this one a miss if I only had one credit and no new books in the library!

    "Thank you Peter Robinson, spot on !"

    A clear and true to life story , and from I the reader,60 something Leeds lasses point of view, who encountered our most vile celebrity in the late 60s I found it to be a refreshing attempt to show how different views were back then. It was also great to show the way that not everyone must buckle under the traumas of their youth, and can move forward and successfully without carrying another's imposed pain!

    Story
    "Not his best"

    I can't actually remember much about this novel which is indicative of the fact that it just didn't really grab my attention. I didn't engage with the characters as much as usual and, for my tastes, it was on the edge of being too gritty. I also felt that Peter Robinson was trying to make points about racism in a rather clumsy way. Certainly not one of the better DCI Banks stories.

    "Peters Best Yet"
    What made the experience of listening to When the Music's Over the most enjoyable?

    The plot is current to recent high profile cases and is extremely believable. The action, for want of a better word, has two story lines running concurrent.

    "Another great read from Peter Robinson"

    The storytelling tackled tricky modern day topics with great sensitivity. Banks's new promotion was taken in his stride. Narration first class. Will read more of his stories.

    "Excellent"

    I'd forgotten what a good author Peter Robinson is. Good story, good characterisation and also a good narrator.
