A beautiful June day in the Yorkshire Dales, and a group of
children are spending the last of their half-term freedom swimming
in the river near Hindswell Woods. But the idyll is shattered by
their discovery of a man's body, hanging from a tree. DI Annie
Cabott soon discovers he is Mark Hardcastle, the well-liked and
successful set designer for the Eastvale Theatre's current
production of Othello.
Everything points to suicide, and Annie is mystified. Why would
such a man want to take his own life? Then Annie's
investigation leads to another shattering discovery, and DCI Alan
Banks is called back from the idyllic weekend he had planned with
his new girlfriend. Banks soon finds himself plunged into a
shadow-world where nothing is what it seems, where secrets and
deceit are the norm, and where murder is seen as the solution to a
The deeper he digs the more he discovers that the monster he has
awakened will extend its deadly reach to his friends and family.
Nobody is safe.
Praise for PIECE OF MY HEART and FRIEND OF THE DEVIL -- : '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 ... 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 Peter Robinson is good at producing ingenious mysteries, and this one does not disappoint -- Susanna Yager, Daily Telegraph A police procedural that grips like pliers -- Independent on Sunday
Peter Robinson, geboren 1950 in Yorkshire, lebt seit etwa zwanzig Jahren in Toronto, Kanada. Er feiert mit seiner Serie um den sympathischen und sehr menschlichen Inspector Alan Banks diesseits und jenseits des Atlantiks große Erfolge und erhielt zahlreiche Preise in den USA, Großbritannien und Europa. Großbritannien besucht er regelmäßig, aber außerhalb zu leben, bringt seiner Meinung nach "eine sehr sinnvolle Distanz zu Großbritannien".
