Publisher's Summary

Vintage Peter Robinson: a standalone LAPD crime thriller, written and set 20 years ago - never before available in the United Kingdom.

In 1980s Hollywood, the beautiful star of a hit TV cop show is being sent strange letters.

At first Sarah Broughton dismisses the letters as the ramblings of a lonely fan. But when the letters take on a disturbing tone, and Sarah discovers a body in the sand outside her Malibu beach house, the experts are brought in.

Working as a detective in the LAPD Threat Management Unit, Arvo Hughes has seen it all before: stalkers, love obsessionals, erotomaniacs - willing to kill themselves and their supposed love objects over their devotion. He knows the language they use and the patterns they follow.

But there is no pattern to follow here. Dealing with a highly unpredictable but extremely violent killer, Arvo feels certain Sarah's stalker must have met her before. But with the squeaky-clean star doing all she can to keep memories of a shady history locked away, Arvo must delve into her past himself.

    "2 narrator's!"

    Didn't see the twist at the end.
    having an english narrator for part of the book took some getting used to as the voice, tone and range was the complete opposite of the American narrator.

    "Nearly below average ..."

    Did not find story absorbing or gripping enough at any point. Would not listen again with this writer but maybe I made an unlucky choice.

    "Out of the ordinary"

    Really enjoyed this book. Set mostly in America and well read, a massive change from the usual northern England scenarios.

    "Early Peter Robinson but worth a listen"

    Found the USA accent hard to get used to, but story was worth it once I got into it.

    "Not Their Finest Hour"

    Very disappointing. Peter Robinson is a better author than this, the dialogue in particular is well below his normal standards and the story meanders and lacks direction at times. Jeff Harding is a much better narrator than this performance and the strange idea of having two narrators based on the country the action is taking place in just judders the whole flow. This was not a great use of a credit but I would say that in my view it's also not a good idea to judge either Robinson or Harding on the strength of it.
