Bookmarks Magazine's Reviews > All The Colors Of Darkness
by Peter Robinson
Peter Robinson rarely strikes a false note in his fiction, and All the Colors of Darkness, which draws on elements of espionage and Cold War treachery, is another solid installment in the Inspector Alan Banks series. Banks has become one of the most recognizable figures in a growing stable of gritty British crime solvers (Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus comes to mind). Critics are divided as to whether Robinson's latest effort is his best, but they are unanimous in praising the author's continued strong plotting and his main character's growth. An added bonus: Robinson's eclectic passion for music has become legendary among his faithful readers, who can find the cuts mentioned in the Banks novels on the author's Web site.
