No Cure for Love

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.

But when it comes to TV star Sarah Broughton, who has been receiving unsettling anonymous letters, even Arvo cannot find a pattern in this stalker´s behaviour. The letters seemed harmless enough, until the actress discovers a mutilated body in the sand right outside her Malibu home.

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 . . .

Portrait

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.
