Children of the Revolution:An Inspector Banks Novel
Yorkshire Detective Alan Banks probes the murder of a former college lecturer in his absorbing 21st case (after Watching the Dark, 2013). Four years ago, Gavin Miller was dismissed from his job following charges of sexual misconduct. Since then he's lived the life of a hermit, existing as frugally as possible on the outskirts of a small village. Now his body has been found on an abandoned railway with five thousand pounds in his pocket. Who would want to kill this man? And why are Banks's superiors warning him to back off the case? A first-rate police procedural.
