Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Not Safe after Dark contains all of Peter Robinson's short crime tales, including three stories about Inspector Banks, a private-eye story set in Florida, and other stories of crime and mystery. It is not surprising that the title story is an exercise in noir suspense, as is the modern classic "Innocence," which won Crime Writer of Canada's Best Short Story Award. This book also contains two crime/detective stories set in the past, including one written especially for this collection.

Whether he writes pure detective stories or heartbreakingly noir tales, Peter Robinson is a thoughtful writer who is one of the best plotters and stylists in the business.
