You think you do not know who I am, but you do. They took you away and Seduced you and stole you from me, just as the others did before. They have tried to blot out your Memory of me … But everything is clear now…

At first, TV star Sarah Broughton thinks the letters she has been receiving are from a typical fan—someone a little strange, perhaps, but harmless. But when her admirer starts threatening Sarah and her loved ones, she turns to detectives Arvo Hughes and Maria Hernandez of the LAPD Threat Management Unit—experts in pursuing the most dangerous of stalkers. Pitted against a frighteningly twisted mind, the detectives test their expertise and experience to the limit in the desperate race to save Sarah’s life.

I have read a lot of Michael Connelly and his detective Harry Bosch. Peter Robinson wrote No Cure for Love contemporary with Connelly's Last Coyote and The Concrete Blonde in 1995.It has a similar Hollywood setting. Connelly has written the foreword for the 2015 edition, applauding the authentic flavour. The similarities in the genre are there.It's about an obsessive stalker and it is creepy.Inspector Banks it isn't but Robinson has proved his versatility and his power to turn out a good yarn wherever it is set.His stand-alone novels, including this one, are all well worth reading

This the worst PR book I ever read! I gave up after reading a third through. Stick to Banks and your lovely Yorkshire roots. No more Hughes and Hernandez please.

Not his best by a long shot

The book is not the best crime fiction but is a good quick read for travel. Final solution is a bit unfair, we don't get a hint at the beginning about this character 'coming through'

Robinson departed from his Detective Banks series and lost my interest. He tried to write a Hollywood mystery about a stalker, and it was so bad I didn't finish it.
