This review is from: Children of the Revolution: The 21st DCI Banks Mystery (An Inspector Banks Mystery) (Kindle Edition)
This is the first time I have written a negative comment but was so disappointed with this book. I am a fan of Peter Robinson's books and have read all the previous Alan Banks stories so looked forward to the latest instalment. To put it simply, this book felt like it had been written by someone else, maybe the script writer for the TV series which is awful. Alan Banks has had a personality transplant: where is his caring, self questioning personality? His life and family outside work was mentioned in short, factual sentences but there was no emotion or feeling. He was more aggressive with witnesses and suspects with little balance. This was so the case with Annie Cabbot, again she read like a different person.
While I have really enjoyed this series of books maybe it would be better to call it a day than continue in this vein

Sadly I agree,though IMHO the series went seriously off the boil about 3 books back.Even before that Banks was still ordering his minions to "make a nice pot of tea" in a supposedly contemporary setting.As others have said sadly I think Banks has had his day.
