by Peter Robinson
Editor Sf

Penguin Group Canada | May 23, 2006 | Trade Paperback

A Dedicated Man is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.

It was a perfect summer. The weather was unusually warm for the dales, and Harry Steadman, who was preparing a book on the area, and his wife, Emma, enjoyed their holiday at the Ramsden Bed and Breakfast.

Ten years later, the memories of that peaceful summer are shattered by Harry''s brutal murder. Inspector Banks is back, investigating a case just as confounding as his first. Who killed the kindly scholar? Penny Cartwright, a beautiful woman with a disturbing past? Harry''s editor? The shady land developer? Is it possible that young Sally Lumb, locked in her lover''s arms on the night of the murder, could unknowingly hold the key to the case?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting! Picked up this title following a PBS presentation featuring DCI Banks. Frankly, the book is even better than the British series! Should definitely be on your "must-read" list... Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am hooked. This is the first book I have read of this author. I've already put in an order for a number of his other titles. Very good plot, high quality writing, and easy to read. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to my friends.

Editorial Reviews

"P.D. James, Reginald Hill and Ruth Rendell may be writing as fast as they can. But what are devotees of the English country mystery supposed to be reading between times? A superior new series by Peter Robinson should do nicely."
—The New York Times Book Review
