· "In No Cure for Love Peter Robinson takes his readers to two places a world apart with ease and authority. He knows his turf and he has seeded it with action, intrigue and fine writing. . . . [A] great read! And it goes on my shelf of favourite L.A. novels." --Michael Connelly, author of The Burning Room
· "This is a fast-paced novel with great characters and a tight plot. Robinson has done his homework and his Los Angelenos have the ring of authenticity. Looks like Hughes and Hernandez may just join Banks on the series shelf." --Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail
· "In No Cure for Love, endurance becomes a cat-and-mouse game involving the strange trio of a British TV star working in L.A., and LAPD detective haunted by demons from his past and a murderous, love- obsessed psychopath. . . . [A] fine read." --The Windsor Star
