Before the Poison Summary

Before the Poison by Peter Robinson

Through years of success in Hollywood composing music for Oscar-winning films, Chris Lowndes always imagined he would come full circle, home to Yorkshire with his beloved wife Laura. Now he's back in the Yorkshire Dales, but Laura is dead, and Chris needs to make a new life for himself. The isolated house he buys sight unseen should give him the space to come to terms with his grief and the quiet to allow him to work.

And something is pulling Chris deeper and deeper into the story of Grace Elizabeth Fox, who was hanged by the neck until she was dead ...

Praise for Peter Robinson -- : 'Peter Robinson has for too long, and unfairly, been in the shadow of Ian Rankin; perhaps PIECE OF MY HEART ... will give him the status he deserves, near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league ... PIECE OF MY HEART brilliantly interweaves past and present ... further enhancing Alan Banks's reputation as one of crime fiction's most appealing cops' -- Marcel Berlins, The Times 'Brilliant! ... Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure.' -- Jeffery Deaver 'A police procedural that grips like pliers' -- Independent on Sunday 'Mr Robinson outdoes Daphne du Maurier in creating the proper atmosphere for the imaginative fancies of a grief-stricken man ... Romantic suspense does turn out to be a woman's game - but one Mr Robinson plays very well indeed.' -- International Herald Tribune 'An atmospheric and suspenseful tale.' -- Country News Insert
