Publisher's Summary

A Dedicated Man is the second novel in Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series, following on from Gallows View. 

Near the village of Helmthorpe, Swainsdale, the body of a well-liked local historian is found half buried under a dry stone wall. Harry Steadman has been brutally murdered. But who would want to kill such a thoughtful, dedicated man? 

Chief Inspector Alan Banks is called in to investigate and soon discovers that disturbing secrets lie behind the apparently bucolic facade. It is clear that young Sally Lumb, locked in her lover's arms on the night of the murder, knows more than she is letting on. And her knowledge could lead to danger....

Good listen

I have not read any off these books so have started from the beginning and have to remember these books are set a few years ago. Saying that for me is ok and the story moves along at a good rate beginning to get to know some off the main characters and they are very likeable, I find them a pleasant read not the best but certainly not the worse, the narration is good. Will be downloading more off the books.

I'm engrossed in these books. very well written

Well written, well read, great detective stories. G would recommend them to anyone who likes crime and thrillers. I am almost at the brink of knowing who did it and then I'm thrown. can't wait to listen to the next one
