I do love a good British police procedural, and this series is definitely one of the good ones! I had read a couple later on in the series and decided to start at the beginning with this book. It features Alan Banks, an inspector in Yorkshire where he's just moved to from London, expecting it to be much more serene and quiet. Ha! :)

GALLOWS VIEW by Peter Robinson: This is the first of the Inspector Banks series for which Robinson has become justly famous. Former London policeman Alan Banks has relocated to small Yorkshire village of Eastvale seeking some small measure of peace, but crime and violence are not limited to large cities. . Soon he is dealing with a brazen Peeping Tom who spies on attractive, unsuspecting ladies as they prepare for bed. When an elderly woman is found brutally slain in her home, Chief Inspector Banks wonders if the voyeur has progressed to more violent crimes. I am looking forward to continuing the series.

Very good detective story. Setting is in England. Main character is a Chief Inspector in his community. One of a series of books involving this character.

Excellent first-in-a-series with Chief Inspector Alan Banks who moves to a small village for a comfortable life. But there are lots of odd things going on in Eastvale. Robinson is great for this genre. I'm pleased to have found a new wonderful series with interesting characters - nothing stuffy in this story. I have ordered the next book already.
