Reviews

Praise for Piece of My Heart and Friend of the Devil
:
Peter Robinson is good at producing ingenious mysteries, and this one does not disappoint
Susanna Yager, <i>Daily Telegraph</i>
Outstanding . . . one of the best voices in contemporary fiction
Publishers Weekly
'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, providing two strands of tension for the price of one, and further enhancing Alan Banks's reputation as one of crime fiction's most appealing cops.'
Marcel Berlins, <i>The Times</i>
After 18 tales of the fiendishly good DCI Alan Banks, the bestselling author delves into his leading man's past
Shortlist
the writing is well up to the author's high standard
<I>The Times</I>
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market
Stephen King
Robinson once again puts his skills to work in a police procedural that grips like pliers
