Crime Fiction Week Sneak Peeks: Peter Robinson - Children of the Revolution

I love watching the ITV drama series DCI Banks, which is based on the novels by bestselling author Peter Robinson, but I'm ashamed to admit that I have not read any of the books!  The latest book in the series, the twenty-first, Children of the Revolution is due to be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 15th August.

A disgraced college lecturer is found murdered with £5,000 in his pocket on a disused railway line near his home. Since being dismissed from his job for sexual misconduct four years previously, he has been living a poverty-stricken and hermit-like existence in this isolated spot.

The suspects range from several individuals at the college where he used to teach to a woman who knew the victim back in the early '70s at Essex University, then a hotbed of political activism. When Banks receives a warning to step away from the case, he realises there is much more to the mystery than meets the eye - for there are plenty more skeletons to come out of the closet...

I couldn't find an extract or book trailer for this book to link to but I did find the following video of the author Peter Banks talking about his character DCI Banks which you might find interesting to watch.
