Publisher's Summary

Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot must work together to solve two chilling crimes in a stunning new novel by New York Times best-selling author Peter Robinson.

One morning in March, on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea, a woman named Karen Drew is found in her wheelchair with her throat slit. Back in Eastvale on that same morning, in a tangle of narrow alleys behind a market square, the body of Hayley Daniels is found raped and strangled.

Two murders...two towns....

On loan to a sister precinct, Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot draws the first case. Karen Drew seems to have lived a quiet and nearly invisible life for the past seven years. Try as she might, Annie turns up nothing in the woman's past that might have prompted someone to wheel her out to the sea and to her death.

Meanwhile, in the Hayley Daniels murder, Chief Inspector Alan Banks has suspects galore. Everywhere she went, the 19-year-old student attracted attention. Anyone could have followed her on the night she was out drinking with friends, making sure she never made it back home.

Then a breakthrough spins Annie's case in a shocking and surprising new direction, straight toward Banks. Coincidence? Not in Eastvale. Banks and Annie are searching for two killers who might strike again at any moment - and with bloody fury.

    Story
    "Improvement from previous narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I liked the story. It was very complex and there was a lot of other smaller stories going on in the background with the main character, which added a certain amount of color to the story.


    What other book might you compare Friend of the Devil to and why?

    It is in keeping with previous books by this author.


    Did Simon Prebble do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Simon Prebble was definitely an improvement from the previous narrator, it took a little while to get used to the different take on the characters. I really enjoyed James Langton's narration, but this was definitely manageable. It was a little over produced, the music added at random times was annoying, and I am not sure why they felt they had to use that strange sound effect when Banks read Templeton progress note.


    Did Friend of the Devil inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, I think I might be able to continue with the series, I stopped when I listened to Ron Keith.

    "Ditch the music"

    The addition of distracting music which certainly isn't part of then book is totally unnecessary. Let the book stand alone not. Don't mess with it.
