I really enjoyed this book by Peter Robinson. The scene was set marvellously by the demo and then the trouble began when a policeman was stabbed.
The introduction of DI Burgess known as 'Dirty Dick' I thought was very good, the man was a cocky sort of character and he certainly had an eye for the ladies especially Glenys at the local pub, so much so that her husband Cyril was very irate about it.
The characters Seth, Maya, Rick and Zoe all had different ways of doing things and towards the end of the book there were a few surprises (I won't spoil it for anyone who has not read the book).
Banks was fed up with Burgess and Banks told him what he thought of him but Burgess thought he could solve the case.
At the end Banks solved the case and I would have liked to have known what Burgess thought of that, this wasn't mentioned in the book so I can only think that Burgess returned to London.
Peter Robinson is excellent at description, he tells the reader what the weather was like over the moors, the cold wind and the wind chimes ringing in Banks' ears as he left 'Maggies Farm' for the last time.
Because of Peter's excellent description of characters, the moors etc. I was able to picture this in my mind.
I have no idea whether this book has won an award, if not - why not.
All the best to Peter and congratulations on an excellent crime novel.
