Chief Inspector Banks is at it again here. The development of the characters in Robinsons series and the description of life in the raw is great

#3 Inspector Alan Banks police procedural in which a policeman is killed during a supposedly peaceful anti-nuclear demonstration gone wrong. Was the copper killed in the heat of the violence of the demonstration as is first assumed, or did someone have a personal vendetta against him? It's up to Banks and crew as well as the haughty "Dirty Dick" Burgess, sent up to Yorkshire from London to find out.

I didn't like this one quite as much as the last--it seemed there were just too many of the same descriptions of lighting cigarettes and pouring this or that drink over and over and OVER again; not only Banks, but those he's with as well. I have no problem with the characters smoking or drinking, but we don't really need to read the details every time they light up or have a pint or a drink, do we? I think the book would have been about a third lighter with a few of those descriptions left out. LOL Still, an interesting entry the series--it wasn't enough to put me off it by any means, more an annoyance than anything--and one bonus was that I didn't figure out the mystery until the very end.

I've read 5 books in this series and this was my least favorite so far. It's still a good story and I would recommend reading it if you are reading the series in order. Lots of characters that weren't really that interesting -
Hippie-like. The Inspector himself makes it worthwhile, though.
