Pressestimmen

“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)

Kurzbeschreibung

"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 . . ."

5.0 von 5 Sternen HAPPY TO SHARE ANOTHER PINT WITH BANKS! 25. März 2014
Format:Taschenbuch
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Überzeugend 5. Juli 2014
Von Mike13
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Wirklich die beste augenblickliche KrimiSerie. Natürlich gibt es auch mal Einzeltitel, die nicht ganz so überzeugend sind, aber Children of the Revolution ist wirklich ausgezeichnet geplottet, der Protagonist in seinen Facetten stimmig und empathisch präsentiert und die auktoriale Leserführung stringend, in der notwendigen Differenziertheit schlüssig und zielführend, ohne die Abschweifungen und Goofs, die z.B. Elisabeth George immer wieder mal bringt.

3.0 von 5 Sternen odd story 1. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
half the people introduced in the book have nothing to do with the outcome of the story. Fair enough, but why the repetition? Telling stories of them all over again and again fills the pages but hardly thickens the story line. I was bored half the time, tempted to skip some pages. The main - but neglected - story line was interesting, and surprising in a way. And good enough not to close the book before end.
The little romance at the end give me the impression that Peter Robinson's older-men-fantasies run wild. Not a good character development for Banks - just pathetic.
