9780062240514: Children of the Revolution: An Inspector Banks Novel (Inspector Banks Novels)

Ex-college lecturer Gavin Miller is found dead; his distorted body strewn across a disused railway track near his home. There's no sign of a struggle, and no concrete evidence except for one distinguishing package: £5,000 of cash, tucked inside the man's pocket.

But when DCI Banks delves into Miller's past, he uncovers a troubled existence tarnished by accusations of abuse and misconduct which throws up an array of puzzling questions.

What really occurred at the college where the victim used to teach?

How was he embroiled in political activism at Essex University, over forty years ago?

And what links him to an upstanding pillar of the community, who also harbours a dark secret from her past?

One thing is clear: someone will stop at nothing - even murder - to prevent Banks from discovering the truth . . .

Review:

A wonderful, well-written plot with a great twist and strong characters and there's even romance on the cards for Banks too. A page-turning read for both fans of Robinson and Banks and readers who really enjoy a good crime-thriller. ( Woman's Way)

Classic Robinson: a labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation ( Observer)

Brilliant! . . . Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure. (Jeffery Deaver)

Detective Chief Inspector Banks, the artsy and melancholic Yorkshire detective, and his snarky sidekick, Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot, are consistently fun to watch . . . As usual with a Banks novel, the chief inspector's frictions with higher-ups are nearly as gripping as the unraveling of the case itself. First-rate procedural and character study . . . this is one of the series' highlights. (Starred Review Booklist)

Robinson's gift for realistic characterisation is matched by an authentically realised sense of place; landscape is a crucial element in his work. The Alan Banks books have won many awards over the years including the Arthur Ellis award for best crime novel for Past Reason Hated and the Anthony Award for In a Dry Season; Children of the Revolution is a solid entry. ( Good Book Guide)

Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 214 x 149 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From one of the world s most acclaimed writers: a twisting, relentless tale of buried secrets and bitter revenge, featuring one of the most complex and beloved protagonists in contemporary fiction.The body of disgraced college lecturer Gavin Miller is found on an abandoned railway line by a woman out walking her dog early one winter morning. In the four years since Miller s dismissal, he s been living like a hermit. So where did he get the thousands in cash found in his pocket? Leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks begins to suspect that the victim s distant past may be connected to his death. Forty years ago the dead man attended a university that was a hotbed of militant protest and divisive, bitter passions. And as the seasoned detective well knows, some grudges are never forgotten or forgiven.Just as Banks is about to break the case open, his superior warns him to back off or risk losing the promotion he has been promised. Yet Banks isn t about to stop, even if it means risking his career. He s certain there s more to the mystery than meets the eye, and more skeletons to uncover before the case can finally be closed.
