We’ll investigate some of the literary world’s greatest detectives in 5 weeks: Inspector Alan Banks (Peter Robinson), Inspector Thomas Lynley (Elizabeth George), Inspector Tom Barnaby (Caroline Graham), Inspector George Gently (Alan Hunter) and Inspector William “Jack” Frost (R.D. Wingfield). Read Peter Robinson’s “Playing with Fire” or any of the authors’ Alan Banks detective stories prior to the first class. We’ll watch a movie based on the suggested story in class followed by a discussion of the investigator(s), the facts of the case and the method(s) of investigation. We’ll follow a similar format with each of the other detectives.
