Another plot based on abuse of young women
I like Peter Robinson's writing and I like the character Alan Banks. I'll tune in again when Mr. Robinson comes with a different kind of case for Banks to solve.
There are so many novels based on sexual abuse, whether it is heterosexual or homosexual abuse. I'm so tired of them - I can't stomach any more. I always feel like the author couldn't think of another story line.
