No Cure For Love is very disappointing and if the name Peter Robinson was not on the book I would never guess he had written it.

The characters are not convincing and at best are two-dimensional.

I only read a third of the book before giving up and only read this much because it was written by Peter Robinson.

I have read all of his Inspector Banks novels twice as they are excellent but this is terrible.

I have read a lot of Michael Connelly and his detective Harry Bosch. Peter Robinson wrote No Cure for Love contemporary with Connelly's Last Coyote and The Concrete Blonde in 1995.It has a similar Hollywood setting. Connelly has written the foreword for the 2015 edition, applauding the authentic flavour. The similarities in the genre are there.It's about an obsessive stalker and it is creepy.Inspector Banks it isn't but Robinson has proved his versatility and his power to turn out a good yarn wherever it is set.His stand-alone novels, including this one, are all well worth reading

This the worst PR book I ever read! I gave up after reading a third through. Stick to Banks and your lovely Yorkshire roots. No more Hughes and Hernandez please.

Not his best by a long shot

The book is not the best crime fiction but is a good quick read for travel. Final solution is a bit unfair, we don't get a hint at the beginning about this character 'coming through'

Robinson departed from his Detective Banks series and lost my interest. He tried to write a Hollywood mystery about a stalker, and it was so bad I didn't finish it.
