I'm a big Peter Robinson fan. I found this one at the hospital book stall, one of my favourite second hand book hunting grounds on the basis that it's easy to justify coming home with an armload when it's for a good cause!

Inspector Alan Banks' ninth case sees him investigating the murder of a young racist. A man who, it seems, has lived by the sword and now died by the sword. But it is never that simple...A night at the opera had offered Chief Inspector Alan Banks a temporary respite from his troubles - both at work and at home. But the telephone call summoning him to Easlvale brings him back to reality with a bump. For the body of teenager Jason Fox has been found in a dirty alleyway. He has been kicked to death. At first it looks like an after-hours pub fight gone wrong - until Banks learns that Jason was a member of a white power organisation known as the Albion League. So who wanted him dead? The Pakistani youths he had insulted in the pub earlier that evening? The shady friends of his business partner Mark Wood? Or someone within the Albion League itself? Someone who resented the teenager's growing power in a brutal and unforgiving organisation...?

This is the first Inspector Banks books where I came away feeling that I'd be better off reading them in sequence.

I found this a quick & engaging read, my only moan being that it ended very abruptly.

I'll be passing this on to rahar109 shortly.

Thank you, one to cross off the wish list.

These books are definitely getting darker. I agree with Kleptokitty that the end was abrupt and rather anti-climatic (is that a word?). I felt rather cheated - killing off the main suspect is a lazy way out. And I'm not interested in Bank's marital problems.
