'The master of the police procedural.' Mail on Sunday

'Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes.' Guardian

*****

The body of a young local student is found on a lonely country road. Initially the evidence points to suicide, yet she didn't own a car and she didn't even drive. So how did she get there, where did she die and who moved her?

Meanwhile, a man in his sixties is found dead in a gully up on the nearby wild moorland. He is carrying no identification. The post-mortem indicates that he died from injuries sustained during the fall, but what was he doing up there? And why are there no signs of a car in the vicinity?

As the trail gets colder, Annie's father's new partner, Zelda, alerts Banks and Annie to the return of an old and dangerous enemy in a new guise. This is someone who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get what he wants.

Review quote

Top-notch police procedure -- Jeffery Deaver Robinson also has a way of undercutting the genre's familiarity. With a deceptively unspectacular language, he sets about the process of unsettling the reader * Independent * Peter Robinson has for too long, and unfairly, been in the shadow of Ian Rankin; perhaps PIECE OF MY HEART, the latest in the Chief Inspector Banks series, will give him the status he deserves, near, perhaps even at the top of the British crime writers' league * The Times * The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. -- Stephen King Praise for the DCI Banks series * : * Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death * On Yorkshire Magazine * His novels track the changing nature of crime, taking on difficult subjects such as gangs of men who groom underage girls, and the new book tackles the contentious subject of widening inequality. * Sunday Times * A fast-paced and ingenious story * On Yorkshire Magazine * Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series' warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. * S Magazine * Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. * Guardian * Robinson remains the master of the police procedural. * Mail on Sunday * This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. * Daily Mail * Praise for Careless Love * : *
