Children of the Revolution by Peter Robinson

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…

Peer & Press Reviews

A wonderful, well-written plot with a great twist and strong characters and there’s even romance on the cards for Banks too.  A page-turning read for both fans of Robinson and Banks and readers who really enjoy a good crime-thriller.

Woman’s Way magazine

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market.

Stephen King

Robinson’s gift for realistic characterisation is matched by an authentically realised sense of place; landscape is a crucial element in his work.  The Alan Banks books have won many awards over the years including the Arthur Ellis award for best crime novel for Past Reason Hated and the Anthony Award for In a Dry Season; Children of the Revolution is a solid entry.
