9780062416605: A Dedicated Man: An Inspector Banks Novel (Inspector Banks Novels)

The body of a well-liked local historian is found half-buried under a drystone wall near the village of Helmthorpe, Swainsdale. Who on earth would want to kill such a thoughtful, dedicated man? Penny Cartwright, a beautiful folk singer with a mysterious past, a shady land-developer, Harry's editor and a local thriller writer are all suspects--and all are figures from Harry's previous, idyllic summers in the dale. A young girl, Sally Lumb, knows more than she lets on, and her knowledge could lead to danger. Inspector Banks's second case unearths disturbing secrets behind a bucolic facade.

Product Description:

It was a perfect summer. The weather was unusually warm for the Dales, and Harry Steadman, who was preparing a book on the area, and his wife, Emma, enjoyed their holiday at the Ramsden Bed and Breakfast. But ten years later the memories of that peaceful summer are shattered by Harry Steadman's brutal murder. Inspector Banks is called in to unravel the truth of what happened to Harry Steadman. Who would kill the kindly scholar? Penny Cartwright, a beautiful woman with a disturbing past? Harry's editor? A shady land developer? And is it possible that young Sally Lumb, locked in her lover's arms on the night of the murder, could unknowingly hold the key to the case?
