The English-Canadian crime writer is best known for his crime novels set in Yorkshire featuring Inspector Alan Banks which spawned the hit TV show DCI Banks.

The first Banks novel was published in 1987 and the successful TV adaptation starring Stephen Tompkinson as Inspector Banks and Andrea Lowe as DI Annie Cabbot first aired on ITV in 2010.

Published by Hodder & Stoughton, Not Dark Yet begins with a gruesome double murder at a Yorkshire property developer’s luxury home which, on the face of it, should be an open and shut case for Superintendent Banks and his team of detectives.
