A Dedicated Man by Peter Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
More of a traditional mystery than Robinson's first book this novel looks into the past of a group of people in a Yorkshire village to figure out who killed the Dedicated Man at the center of the circle. The ending pulled information that the reader got when Banks did into a logical answer. A well-crafted mystery in the British police-procedural tradition.
Robinson lived in Toronto when he published this book (per the jacket copy) making this book #11/13 for the Canadian Book Challenge.
