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 .
Awesome read. Always enjoy time with Banks. Terrific story line and beautifully plotted novel. Robinsons books keep getting better and better with great complex story line. He is one of the author whose books i never turn back to read the summary. If the novel is by Peter Robinson, m IN, no second thought.Great mystery novel. Its like a Sudoku Puzzle to my brain. Enjoy !!
Happy Reading !!
