No Cure For Love Summary

No Cure For Love by Peter Robinson


Before you discovered DCI Banks, Dectective Arvo Hughes was on the case in this vintage standalone crime thriller from Peter Robinson.

As a detective in the LAPD Threat Management Unit, Arvo Hughes has dealt with every kind of stalker there is - and in 1990s Hollywood, he's not short of work.

Tasked with finding out who has been sending unsettling anonymous letters to beautiful TV star Sarah Broughton, Arvo expects this case to be nothing out of the ordinary - until the actress discovers a strangely mutilated body left in the sand outside her beach house.

Certain that Sarah's stalker must have met her before, Arvo realises his only chance to catch the killer before he gets closer to Sarah is to delve into her past. But nothing is straightforward in this case, and the squeaky-clean star seems to be keeping all memories of a shady history locked away . . .

No Cure For Love Reviews

Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation * Observer *
[Peter Robinson deserves a place] near, perhaps even at the top of, the British crime writers' league * The Times *
Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wenching portraits of the characters who populate his world . . . top-notch police procedure * Jeffery Deaver *
If Robinson is to turn out one-off novels as assured as this perhaps we wouldn't mind too much if Alan Banks was to retire and take up beekeeping in Sussex * Daily Express *

About Peter Robinson

In 1994, Peter Robinson wrote his second standalone novel, No Cure for Love, out of a long-standing fascination with Los Angeles - from the movies of his childhood to the novels of Raymond Chandler. By 1995, he had already won and been nominated for numerous awards and had written the first six DCI Banks novels.

Twenty years on, there are now twenty-two books in the critically acclaimed DCI Banks series - which has been made into a major ITV1 drama - and Peter has also written two collections of short stories. Peter's books have won the Arthur Ellis award six times to date, and in 2013 he won the IMBA's 2013 Dilys Award for his most recent standalone novel, Before the Poison.

Originally published in 1995, No Cure for Love is now available in the UK for the first time, with an introduction by Michael Connelly.
