Piece of My Heart (flipback edition) Summary


Piece of My Heart (flipback edition) by Peter Robinson

Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm.

As volunteers clean up after an 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. He could not have less in common with - or less regard for - young, disrespectful, long-haired hippies, smoking marijuana and listening to the pulsing sounds of rock and roll. But he has a murder to solve, and it looks as if the victim was somehow associated with up-and-coming psychedelic pastoral band the Mad Hatters.

Some forty years later, Inspector Alan Banks is investigating the murder of a freelance music journalist who was working on a feature about the Mad Hatters. Banks must delve into the events of 1969 to find out exactly what hornets' nest the journalist inadvertently stirred up.

Piece of My Heart (flipback edition) Reviews


'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 *
'PIECE OF MY HEART brilliantly evokes the time of British psychedelia . . . as well as being a terrific contemporary crime novel.' * Independent on Sunday *
'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 *
