No Place of Safety (1998}
A detective Charlie Peace mystery and for whatever reason, Robert Barnard's Peace mysteries are not as interesting to me as his standalone thrillers. Still, I'm not sure Robert Barnard has ever written a poor mystery. They are all well-plotted, tricky, and full of hard-to-read characters. I know that Idris Elba just finished doing Luther, a detective series for the BBC, but is too much to ask that they bring him back to play Peace for a new series.
