There is little that Detective Inspector Alan Banks has not seen in this long-running Peter Robinson series, but this novel probably includes more suspects in what appears to be a serial murder mystery of teen age girls than any previous entry. And probably more red herrings to throw the reader off as well. The first girl, a bright blonde attending a posh, exclusive girl’s school, is the daughter of a titled, wealthy head of a large company. Her body is found in a churchyard she uses as a shortcut home at the end of the school day. Dead of strangulation, the body is left in such a state as to hint at a sexual homicide. Later a second teenager is found in a similar state. A suspect is arrested and brought to trial, only to be found not guilty by the jury. Banks and his team have their work cut out for them after what was initially thought to be an easy solve. And it is not for the lack of additional suspects, a specialty of the author. The plot unfolds bit by bit, as Banks moves forward to the ultimate conclusion. The courtroom segment, somewhat unusual for its day-to-day detail, demonstrates a degree of legal expertise previously not shown in the series. The portrayal of the attorneys’ examinations and cross-examinations are particularly well done. Recommended.

Peter Robinson is an author that I enjoy. He has grown in each novel. In this story, a teenage girl from a wealthy family is murdered. Susan Gay is a fellow officer that also grows each time she appears. I look forward to how he solves the cases.This is the only one of his 21 Inspector Alan Banks books I have read out of order. Still enjoyed it.
