Children of the Revolution

Today I’m featuring a book that I’m reading for review. 

As Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks walked along the disused railway track, he couldn’t help but imagine two young lovers kissing on the footbridge ahead, shrouded in smoke from a steam engine. All very Brief Encounter. But the age of steam was long gone, and it wasn’t love he was walking towards; it was a suspicious death.

I’m reading this one in conjunction with a blog tour hosted by the publisher. I read my first Peter Robinson book this year (Watching the Dark) and enjoyed it and was thrilled to get the opportunity to read the latest installment from Mr. Robinson. So far this book has definitely caught my interest, and I hope you return on April 16 to see my final thoughts.
