Published two decades ago before his Inspector Banks series caught on, this Peter Robinson stand alone thriller, which unfolds in Los Angeles, has been reissued.

Sarah Broughton has left her dark past with a rock band and former name (Sally Bolton) behind to become the star of the newest hit television cop show.

As with any rising star, Sarah is being flooded with letters from appreciative fans. Dismissing the attention as nothing more than admiration from appreciative viewers, Sarah doesn't take the letters seriously until the ones signed by 'M' begin to use her former name.

That troubling fact, coupled with the discovery of the remains of a body buried close to her beach house with her name scratched in the sand, sends up a red flag that can't be ignored.

Enter LAPD Arvo Hughes who specializes in tracking down stalkers who pose serious threats to their victims. Hughes is assigned to Sarah's case and he's in for one of the most challenging investigations in his career.

Peter Robinson has come a long way since this novel was first published and it has met with mixed reactions. While some of the fans of his Inspector Banks have given it a thumbs up, others have not been so positive. I have to admit that the Banks character is more interesting and the series' Yorkshire setting is much more attractive than the author's foray into the Southern California entertainment capital.
