"Like a Virgin" is a novella included in a book of short stories. It relates to an case early in Bank's career when he was still in London, I find the interviews with both victims and aggressors, shorter and smoother, compared with the last books. As usual he seems to spend half of his time on the job and the other half in a pub. The story gives insight into his way of life at that time and reasons for the move north. Like a lot of books and movies, there is a broad hint of who an upcoming victim will be. Although there are a lot of bodies being tossed about, in the end, justice is served. And to top it of, the book was a good collection of stories.
