Cold Is The Grave - Peter Robinson Chief Constable and Alan Banks nemesis Jeremiah Riddle’s wild run-away daughter is spotted nude in a porn web site by Riddle’s young son. Eating crow, Riddle asks CI banks to look into it, unofficially of course. Banks does indeed find the missing Emily, and learns, ultimately more than he bargains for of the Riddle family. Emily winds up dead. Was her London acquaintance, Ruth, a friend or something more? Is there more to the gangster Clough than meets the eye. Why does Emily’s mother, Rosalind, seem less than eager for her to return? Why did a local small time hood, Courage, wind up dead? What about the other deaths that have sprung up like mushrooms after a rain. The usual good stuff from Robinson. We learn that copying CD’s and games has become a large criminal enterprise.
