Young love. Stolen identities. Murder. It’s all happening at this month’s book club.

From 1960, when a student finds himself a suspect in an ex-girlfriend’s murder, to 2019, when an archeological dig unearths a skeleton that turns out to be far more recent than the Roman remains expected … Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his team find the two cases are related … with brilliant twists and turns. Standing In The Shadows is a brilliantly thrilling read from Peter Robinson, who really is the master of mystery suspense. Hodder & Stoughton
