Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fast-moving story [with] some knockout scenery and an assemblage of delicately drawn characters.” (Raleigh News & Observer)

“First-rate.” (Washington Post Book World)

“Robinson has kept up an astonishingly high standard...make no mistake, he’s among the very best.” (London Times)

“The best series now on the market.” (Stephen King)

“Wonderful...multi-layered mystery.” (Michael Connelly)

“Prepare for a crash course in taut, clean writing and subtle psychology.” (Ian Rankin)

From the Back Cover

1969 . . . In an era of free love and rebellion, a dead body is discovered among the detritus of a recently concluded rock festival—a beautiful young woman stabbed so savagely through the chest that a piece of her heart was sliced off.

Now . . . A freelance journalist, a stranger to the region, is savagely bludgeoned to death in a shocking act of violence with no apparent motive.

Two murders separated by four decades are investigated by two very different but equally haunted investigators—one, a casualty of war unable to come to terms with a confusing new world; the other, a rogue policeman harboring ghosts of his own. But the truth behind a grisly present-day slaying may somehow be hidden in the amplified, drug-induced fog of a notorious past, propelling Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks into the darkest shadows of the peace, love, and rock 'n' roll generation.
