I imagine that this has been re-published to cash in on the success of Peter Robinson’s Inspector Banks books. It’s set in Los Angeles, though, not Yorkshire and revolves around an actress being stalked by a psychopath from her past. This might have seemed fresh and exciting twenty years ago, when it originally appeared; now it reads a little like one of those moderately exciting made-for-TV thrillers that were common in the late 80s. Fans of PR will want to read it no matter what I say, but anyone who doesn’t know his books would do better to find an Inspector Banks story to start with. Or his standalone mystery, Before The Poison.
