For kindle to-day only probably they are on offer from Amazon kindle for 99p each. I really enjoy his books not too much gore and good stories. Although I have read them all I buy a few to put on my kindle " just in case I run out of books "

Used to be a huge Peter Robinson fan, but last few books found really disappointing, no doubt I’ll give it a go though.

Thanks for the info but I have read and enjoyed them all. Absolutely hate the TV adaptation. Steven Tompkinson is not my idea of Banks

Thanks for the tip!
I agree with BBbevan - I like Stephen Tompkinson, but he's not Banks!!

He’s definitely not Banks! My idea of Banks, is Peter Barlow in Coronation Street.

We've read them all. Love the books but hate the TV series. What were they thinking of casting Stephen Tompkinson and completely trashing Annie Cabot's storylines?

Annie is also totally miscast in my opinion, didn’t like her character in the TV adaptations

I listen to audiobooks and have listened to his first four books
Gallows View
Dedicated Man
A Necessary Evil
The Hanging Valley

Then the 7th
Final Account

Any suggestions which next or should I try to listen in order?

Past Reason Hated is book 5 and Wednesday's Child book 6.

My favourite is the 10th. In a Dry Season.

Very disappointed with his last two books.
