<p>“The accomplished Robinson never disappoints, mixing well-developed characterizations with edge-of-the-seat action.”<br />—<em>New Orleans Times-Picayune</em></p><p>“Make no mistake, he’s among the very best.”<br />—<em>The Times</em> (London)</p><p>Already justifiably acclaimed for his bestselling crime fiction novels featuring British Chief Inspector Alan Banks (“The best series now on the market” —Stephen King), Peter Robinson delivers a truly stunning standalone thriller, <em>Before the Poison</em>. Brilliantly combining the rich, atmospheric narrative of his award-winning <em>In a Dry Season</em> with the twists and suspense of the noir classic <em>Laura</em>, <em>Before the Poison</em> tells the riveting story of a composer who comes to the scene of a notorious crime and becomes obsessed with a beautiful, mysterious, and possibly very dangerous woman. Evocatively set in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, <em>Before the Poison</em> is a masterful tale of mystery and suspense from the Anthony and Edgar® Award winner whose extraordinary fiction Janet Maslin of the <em>New York Times</em> compared to, “the masculine, brooding work of Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, George P. Pelecanos, and Jonathan Kellerman.”<br /></p>
