In The Dark Places by Peter Robinson


A stolen tractor, blood in an abandoned hanger, and now dead bodies and missing suspects.

Th​is particular investigation went from looking for a stolen tractor to murder and covert activities. 

IN THE DARK PLACES was quite a good mystery with terrific characters. ​ I enjoyed the camaraderie among the investigators. The victims and their families were likable​, and the storyline made me not want to put the book down.

The tangled series of events made for ​an excellent, gripping read with clues that turned the investigation into other directions and into more than what the investigators first started out with.

IN THE DARK PLACES kept me guessing until the end.   Mr. Robinson knows how to create drama that takes the reader to a different level and then wraps it all up with an ah ha at the end.

This is my first book by Mr. Robinson, and I thoroughly enjoyed IN THE DARK PLACES. 

I would recommend IN THE DARK PLACES to any reader who likes to figure out the mystery but rarely does.  :)  4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

  3. What amazes me is how long Mr. Robinson has had this series going. I've only managed to read the first two in the series thus far.
