Gallows View by Peter Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first novel about Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks, a police officer in the Yorkshire Dales. He and his wife have recently come there from London and while this is a police procedural, it is also a novel about Alan Banks and what makes him who he is. It was well plotted and I liked Banks as a character. I look forward to reading more of this series the 25th installment of which is expected this July. Peter Robinson studied at the University of Windsor in Ontario and taught at various Toronto schools, so I am counting him as a Canadian author for the Canadian Book Challenge.
