this is an audio post - click to play

I caught up with Peter Craig at his book launch at Duttons in Brentwood. About 50 people were there to hear Peter read a selection and sign a copy of his new book BLOOD FATHER.
This book was highly recommended by Scott Phillips on his year end Top 5 list, even though it didn't come out until this month.

This is Peter's third book, and demonstrates a wonderful ear for dialogue. The characters are vivid and the book stays with you after you finish reading it.

I asked Peter about what is next and book 4 is in the works. I can harly wait.

UPDATE : Peter's novel has been adapted by Warner Bros. Read the following here:

Peter Robinson - Inspector Banks Returns

It was with great pleasure that I was able to run into Peter Robinson today at MysteriesTo Die For. Yes, that is a Disneyworld shirt!

Peter is touring in support of the 15th Inspector Banks book STRANGE AFFAIRS. The book is a follow up to last year's smash PLAYING WITH FIRE.

I asked him about a CD with music Banks would listen to. He thought it was a great idea and it would be great if his publisher would do this for him. As always, who owne the rights to the music and cost involved may make this type of project cost prohibited. Too bad.

Robinson is working on the next book which is tentatively titled A PIECE OF MY HEART (Janis Joplin song) and takes place in the late 60's. He now on a new contract that may allow him a few additinal months to write the book. Good for Peter and we have to wait longer to read the next installment.

How many of you have read the Banks series? How would you compare him to Rebus?
