Rankin's damaged Scot Rebus had the inclusion of his daughter into his stories quite early on, Robinson's gruff rule bender Banks has had his own teenage daughter quietly sitting in the wings until now. Bad Boy, the 19th Inspector Banks book, makes things personal for him while Read the complete review
