This book is Peter Robinson’s first book, this is where we meet the infamous DCI Alan Banks. He is such a good character that he now has his own TV series where the books are adapted for TV. I’ve not seen it but if they are anything like the books then it will be a good series.
This first book introduces the main characters such as Banks, his wife Sandra, his police partner Hatchley and the pretty police psychologist Jenny. The story surrounds a Yorkshire police force and the lives of those police.
Gallows View sees Banks trying to find a peeping tom that is peeping on all the blonde women in the village and thieves that are robbing old ladies homes. As the cases progresses Banks finds that the perpetrators of these crimes maybe closely linked.
This is a good first book, it’s not too long or overly confusing but it is good and quite intriguing. Peter Robinson is definitely one to read.
