A shocking mass murder occurs at a wedding in a small Dales church and a huge manhunt follows.

Eventually, the shooter is run to ground and things take their inevitable course. But Banks is plagued with doubts as to exactly what happened outside the church that day, and why.

Struggling with the death of his first serious girlfriend and the return of profiler Jenny Fuller into his life, Banks feels the need to dig deeper into the murders, and as he does so, he uncovers forensic and psychological puzzles that lead him to the past secrets that might just provide the answers he is looking for.

When the surprising truth becomes clear, it is almost too late.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. * Stephen King *
Top-notch police procedure * Jeffery Deaver *
A mighty force to be reckoned with in crime fiction * Publisher's 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. * The Times *
Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation * Observer *
Long may Peter Robinson keep writing these books! I envy anyone who has not yet discovered this series * Breakaway Reviews *
Robinson's interrogations, many of them conducted in pubs, have the rare quality of steadily illuminating and thickening both the speakers and their subjects. The result is a slow-burning intensity that deepens from beginning to end * Kirkus Reviews *
Robinson also has a way of undercutting the genre's familiarity. With a deceptively unspectacular language, he sets about the process of unsettling the reader. * Independent *
A canon that is on the way to rivalling Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot . . . Superbly textured, this dark story reveals that Banks is growing even more suspicious and melancholy as he grows older - which makes him even more captivating. * Daily Mail *
