Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Absorbing...Robinson excels at connecting his detectives’ personal stories to the investigation, endowing familiar characters with fresh nuance and depth. Impeccable pacing fleshes out Miller’s tragic life and unravels the killer’s motive.” (Publishers Weekly on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

Praise for Peter Robinson and the Detective Banks series: “Robinson rolls out a police procedural with exquisite precision.” (USA Today)

“Ambitious…Robinson shows a keen awareness of the global reach of crime.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Superb mystery series...outstanding.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Smoothly blends careful police work and astute psychological observations.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It’s easy to relate to and root for Banks.” (New York Post)

“Haunting stand-alone from Arthus Ellis Award-winner Robinson.” (Publishers Weekly on Before the Poison)

“Consistently fun...[A] first-rate procedural and character study..” (Booklist (starred review) on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“[Childred of the Revolution is] well-plotted and satisfying right to the end....Robinson has won many awards for his Detective Banks novels, and with this latest, he demonstrates his mastery of the craft.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Excellent.” (Library Journal on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Banks is a fully rounded character - smart, dogged and not above defying his superiors. The supporting cast is equally strong, including the wonderfully named Detective Sergeant Winsome Jackman and Lady Veronica Chalmers, an aristocrat whose radical activities during her university years link her to the dead man.” (Seattle Times on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Meticulously detailed...This is a fine, twisty, surprising tale.” (Providence Journal on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Robinson again succeeds in creating a satifyingly confounding mystery and increasing the already formidable depth of his superb ensemble cast.” (Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Multiple award-winning, New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Peter Robinson returns with Children of the Revolution, a superb tale of mystery and murder that takes acclaimed British Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks back to the early 1970s—a turbulent time of politics, change, and radical student activism.

The body of a disgraced college lecturer is found on an abandoned railway line. In the four years since his dismissal for sexual misconduct, he’d been living like a hermit. So where did he get the 5,000 pounds found in his pocket?

Leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks begins to suspect that the victim's past may be connected to his death. Forty years ago the dead man attended a university that was a hotbed of militant protest and divisive, bitter politics. And as the seasoned detective well knows, some grudges are never forgotten—or forgiven.

Just as he’s about to break the case open, his superior warns him to back off. Yet Banks isn’t about to stop, even if it means risking his career. He's certain there’s more to the mystery than meets the eye . . . and more skeletons to uncover before the case can finally be closed.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed, for two reasons 11 novembre 2013
Par Emily B.
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First, I've always been a fan of these novels, appreciating the style, the plot, the overall balance between inner psychological view into the protagonists, and crime solving, plus the added value of nice landscapes and typical setting. The other reason? I've always appreciated the comments made by readers, as they help me discriminate and often offer a smart analysis of the bok just read.
Disapponted, thus, by myself: should have listened to the readers, and not to my customary confidence of the writer: PLot is too slow, Laborious, heavy, and no character really stands out. Even Banks seems but a ghost of himself, a parody of his personnality.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HAPPY TO SHARE ANOTHER PINT WITH BANKS! 25 mars 2014
Disclosure: I’m a huge fan of Peter Robinson and his Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks novels. There - my bias has been admitted up front. For me, these stories never fail to excite, satisfy and surprise. Robinson has a wonderful ability to mesh his characters personal lives with the mystery at hand, thus creating a reader/character bond. So, beginning another Banks novel is very much like visiting with an old friend (in a pub over a pint of Sneck Lifter, of course).

One of the pleasures found in reading a Banks novel is being privy to the way the Chief Inspector’s mind works, and this comes to the fore in Children Of The Revolution. Robinson loses no time in collaring his readers as on page 2 we find Banks called to a crime scene where he views “the crumpled body of an emaciated old man.” The name of the deceased is Gavin Miller, a recluse who has struggled to live at the poverty level since his dismissal from Eastvale College job following charges of sexual misconduct some four years ago.

Miller’s body was found beneath a railroad bridge. The side of the bridge was too high for him to have simply fallen - he had to have been lifted up or thrown over. Was it the result of a fight, murder or manslaughter? To further confound officials 5,000 pounds was found in Miller’s pocket - drug money?

Banks heads the investigation with his team spread out to uncover any information they could about Miller whether it be in his neighborhood or from former colleagues at Eastvale. What few answers they receive only further muddy the waters; contradictions, half-truths abound. However, it eventually becomes apparent that the answers Banks needs are not to be found in the recent past but more than likely in events that occurred some 40 years ago.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Waouh ! Banks remue les ouvenirs ... 29 mai 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Une étoile en moins parce que j'ai eu des doutes... Où va-t-il avec ces deux enquêtes ? Il faut passer la moitié du livre pour commencer à comprendre (je ne doute pas du fait que certains seront + rapides que moi). Comme quoi je suis + attachée à Banks et sa collègue qu'aux autres enquêteurs...
Le côté intéressant de la partie hors Banks est le flash back sur l'Angleterre Thatcher vu par un GB = pas forcément comme c'était décrit ou compris en France.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 steady and well constructed 11 juin 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a very well constructed detective story with intersting and quite well rounded characters. The construction of the plot moves at a good pace with plenty of interesting details to whet the appetite.
