Peter Robinson

17 March 1950 - 4 October 2022

Best known for his DCI Banks series, Peter Robinson was the author of over thirty books, novellas and short story collections. In the CWC community he was equally well know for his intelligence, warmth and sense of humour.

Peter and I started our writing careers more or less at the same time. He was the new kid on the block as far as CWC was concerned. His books were fresh, original, tougher. I didn’t learn for a long time that he was a PhD; his degree acquired in poetry of all things. The gritty and the gentle. He has left this life far too soon.

Maureen Jennings

Peter’s books always rose to the top of my to-be-read as soon as they came out. Intelligent, nuanced, and insightful, they were hard-hitting and often raw, but laced with commpassion and hope. As a colleague and friend, I will miss his warmth, wit, and wry humour, but he leaves behind the gift of his work.

Barbara Fradkin

Peter Robinson was the crime writer that many of us Canadian mystery writers hoped we could be when we grew up. He was as kind as he was prolific and always generous with his time to help another writer. We have lost a giant.

Mike Martin

I knew Peter for over thirty years.  My earliest memories of him are the dinners Alison Gordon hosted for Eric Wright, Howard Engel, Peter, Ted and me every time We were in Toronto. The food was always good; the wine was always plentiful and the talk was always thoughtful and revealing,  I cherish the memory of one particular late summer evening when we sat in Alison's beautiful garden on Playter Boulevard and discussed the nature of Happiness.  I am grateful that Alison, Eric, Howard and Peter were in Ted's life and mine.  I miss them all.
