Children of the Revolution: DCI Banks 21

Peter Robinson

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Dci Banks, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

The twenty-first novel in the critically acclaimed DCI Banks series by Number One bestselling author Peter Robinson.

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 suspicious evidence - except for a large package of cash tucked inside the man's pocket.

But when DCI Banks delves into Miller's past, he uncovers a troubled existence and a reputation tarnished by accusations of abuse and misconduct which throw 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 - not even murder - to prevent Banks from discovering the truth...
