This was my first exposure to the Chief Inspector Banks series. I became hooked immediately; enough so that I purchased all the books in the series and am reading through them one-by-one in chronological order. Chief Inspector Banks ranks among the best in terms of his ability to solve a crime. Yet there is a softer side to him that has been developed fantastically. I think some review of the Banks series said that you are left wondering what the characters are up to long after you finished the book. How true! I often wonder what Banks is up to, how his family relationships are going, what Sgts. Hatchley and Gay have been doing lately, and so on. I thoroughly praise and thank Peter Robinson for giving us Chief Inspector Banks. Though somewhat different in style, if you enjoy the Chief Inspector Morse series, you'll love the Banks series. A Dedicated Man would be an excellent introduction to a fantastic series!
