Publisher's Summary

A Peeping Tom is frightening the women of Eastvale; two glue-sniffing young thugs are breaking into homes and robbing people; an old woman may or may not have been murdered. Investigating these cases is Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks, a perceptive, curious, and compassionate policeman recently moved to the Yorkshire Dales from London to escape the stress of city life.

In addition to all this, Banks has to deal with the local feminists and his attraction to a young psychologist, Jenny Fuller. As the tension mounts, both Jenny and Banks' wife, Sandra, are drawn deeper into the events. The cases weave together as the story reaches a tense and surprising climax.

    "Excellent abridged version"

    I'd read a number of Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks books before I discovered Audible, but not this particular book from early on in the series. It's an excellent abridged book and it's hard to imagine what has been cut as it seems a detailed story with all the threads coming together satisfactorily at the conclusion and the characters are well rounded creations helped greatly by the excellent narration by Neil Pearson.
