When Alan Banks receives a disturbing telephone call from his brother, Roy, he abandons the peaceful Yorkshire Dales for the bright lights of London to search him out. But Roy has vanished into thin air, and now Banks fears this could have been their final conversation. Meanwhile, DI Annie Cabbot is called to a murder scene on a quiet stretch of road just outside Eastvale. A young woman called Jennifer Clewes has been found dead in her car, and in the back pocket of her jeans, written on a slip of paper, police discover Banks's name and address. Living in his brother's empty, luxurious South Kensington flat, Banks finds himself digging into the life of the brother he never really knew, or even liked. He begins to uncover some troubling surprises, leaving Annie to track down Jennifer Clewes's friends and colleagues alone. It seems that both trails are leading towards frightening conclusions. And when the cases begin to intersect, the consequences for Banks and Annie become terrifying . . . Strange Affairis Peter Robinson's fifteenth Inspector Banks novel, and it amply demonstrates why he's counted among the top crime fiction writers in the world. From the Hardcover edition.

A complex trail of evil that deals with human trafficking and the possible involvement of Bank's somewhat shady brother. This turns out to be a very emotional and difficult case for Banks.
Overall it is a good mystery with a good pace especially the last 40 pages with an unexpected twist at the end.
Robinson continues with his familiar characters with additions to their stories and refreshers to the past. Ideally best read in order of their English publication dates. Recommended.
