As volunteers clean up after a huge outdoor rock concert in Yorkshire in 1969, they discover the body of a young woman wrapped in a sleeping bag. She has been brutally murdered. The detective assigned to the case, Stanley Chadwick, is a hard-headed, strait-laced veteran of the Second World War. In the present, Inspector Alan Banks is investigating the murder of a freelance music journalist who was working on a feature about the Mad Hatters for MOJO magazine. This is not the first time that the Mad Hatters, now aging rock superstars, have been brushed by tragedy. Banks finds he has to delve into the past to find out exactly what hornets' nest the journalist inadvertently stirred up. This paperback book has 536 pages and measures: 19.7 x 12.9 x 3.2cm

Review:

The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series on the market (Stephen King)

A terrific contemporary crime novel (Independent on Sunday)

Further enhances Alan Banks' reputation as one of crime fiction's most appealing cops (The Times)

Classic Robinson: labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation (Observer)

Banks is one of the most fully drawn figures in this genre of fiction (New York Times)

'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, The Times)

'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, The Times)

'Robinson delicately reveals a web of passion and pain whose pattern still isn't complete' (Kirkus Reviews)

'PIECE OF MY HEART brilliantly evokes the time of British psychedelia (which I remember as standing in a muddy field sucking on a weak joint), as well as being a terrific contemporary crime novel.' (Independent on Sunday)

'This is Banks' 16th outing and the best yet' (Mirror)

'A fascinating and atmospheric exploration of the way the past intrudes on the present' (Mo Hayder, Globe and Mail)

'This book must be the bargain of the year, for it is two riveting, equally interesting crime novels in one. What takes it into the premier league, however, is Robinson's utterly convincing and moving portrayal of Chadwick and Banks' (Telegraph)

'Robinson has to use all his ingenuity to find the solution to both killings. This book benefits hugely from Robinson's sympathetic leading man and the richly recorded Dales settings.' (Scotsman)

'A fascinating and atmospheric exploration of the way the past intrudes on the present' (Mo Hayder)

'Banks is one of the most fully drawn figures in this genre of fiction. . . . Piece of My Heart with a title that refers to grisly forensic evidence as well as to Janis Joplin - makes ingenious use of the overlap between crime and rock stardom.' (Janet Maslin, New York Times)

'Remarkable series. . . Keeps you turning the pages into the night...Robinson expertly brings his little postage stamp of native soil to life . . . [Chief Inspector Banks is] good company.' (New York Times Book Review )

'PIECE OF MY HEART is a wonderful, atmospheric addition to a series that's always been pure quality.' (Reviewing the Evidence)

'Superb . . . This book must be the bargain of the year, for it is two riveting crime novels in one. What takes it into the premier league, however, is Robinson's utterly convincing and moving portrayal of Chadwick and Banks - middle-aged men who both feel alienated by, and out of step with, the times they live in' (Rachel Simhon, Telegraph)

'The contrast between Banks and the tortured cop who the murder is intriguing' (The Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

Neal Pearson turns out another cracking Inspector Banks performance in this taut thriller spanning the 60s to the present, this time with Hugh Ross providing an extra dimension as Banks' determined 1960s counterpart. If you enjoyed the previous Inspector Banks mysteries you'll love this, Robinson's best thriller yet - and a tense, gripping audiobook that's perfect for crime fans everywhere.
