Peter Robinson Press 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' Marcel Berlins, The Times


'Brilliant! ... Gut-wrenching plotting, alongside heart-wrenching portraits of the characters who populate his world, not to mention the top-notch police procedure.' Jeffery Deaver

 

'Classic Robinson: a labyrinthine plot merged with deft characterisation' Observer

 

'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
