A young local student has apparently committed suicide. Her body is found in an abandoned car on a lonely country road. She didn't own a car. Didn't even drive. How did she get there? Where did she die? Who moved her, and why?

Meanwhile a man in his sixties is found dead in a gully up on the wild moorland. He is wearing an expensive suit and carrying no identification. Post-mortem findings indicate he died from injuries sustained during the fall. But what was he doing up there? And why are there no signs of a car in the vicinity?

As the inconsistencies multiply and the mysteries proliferate, Annie's father's new partner, Zelda, comes up with a shocking piece of information that alerts Banks and Annie to the return of an old enemy in a new guise. This is someone who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get what he wants - and suddenly the stakes are raised and the hunt is on.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Careless Love - :

This is vintage Banks - a dogged search for truth which never once loses its grip on its hero's intuition and charm. - Daily Mail

Robinson remains the master of the police procedural. - Mail on Sunday

Robinson is prolific, but with each book he manages to ring the changes. - Guardian

Banks' slow but dogged pursuit of murderers and his meditations on the past make him a figure readers feel they know intimately and trust implicitly and, despite moments of darkness, the series' warmth makes you feel all's right with the world. - S Magazine

A fast-paced and ingenious story - On Yorkshire Magazine

His novels track the changing nature of crime, taking on difficult subjects such as gangs of men who groom underage girls, and the new book tackles the contentious subject of widening inequality. - Sunday Times

Robinson has a unique knack of revealing to the layman the painstaking and ingenious ways in which the numerous experts who work for the police can wheedle out the most infinitesimal clues surrounding a suspicious death - On Yorkshire Magazine

Praise for the DCI Banks series - :

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are the best series on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong. - Stephen King

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

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

Top-notch police procedure - Jeffery Deaver

“Fabulous read”

A riveting tale to keep you guessing right to the very end. Just when you think you have figured out who did it, something always comes up and surprises you. I recommend Peter to everyone, and I have read all his... More

“Same old, same old....”

Tedious read from start to finish, as formulaic as most of his peers, Val McDermid, Peter James etc. have become churning out the same old guff just to put a few more quid in the bank. Tank goodness Ian Rankin and his... More
