Featuring a foreword by Michael Connelly, this relentlessly
suspenseful thriller from the New York Times bestselling and
Edgar award-winning author of the Inspector Banks novels
marks the first time that Peter Robinson has set a novel in
Sarah Broughton has come a long way. Sheâ€™s the star of a hit
cop show on TV. She lives in a beautiful California beach
house. Andâ€”most importantlyâ€”sheâ€™s put her dark past behind
herâ€¦ as well as her old name, Sally Bolton. No need for
anyone to know about that.
When Sarah begins receiving letters mysteriously signed with
the letter â€śM,â€ť she thinks theyâ€™re from a harmless admirerâ€¦
until her real name appears in the third letter. And then
she finds that name inscribed in the sand near her home â€“
next to a body.
The message is clear: Someone is watching Sarahâ€™s every
move. Someone so obsessed with her that he wonâ€™t stop at
just one murder in order to prove his love.
Panicked, Sarah turns to Detective Arvo Hughes of the LAPD,
a man who specializes in hunting down the most dangerous
stalkers. But nothing in Hughesâ€™ experience has prepared him
for the mastermind heâ€™s up against. For the killer, thereâ€™s
no cure for love. And for Sarah and Hughes, thereâ€™s no way out.
