No Cure for Love: A Novel by Peter Robinson

Reviewed by Caryn St. Clair

No Cure for LoveSally Bolton left her home in England and came to America. Before long, she had become a groupie of a rock band, and was heavily into drugs and booze. She was more or less the band leader’s gal, but he had others as well-as did she. But then, one frightening incident sent her running. She hopped in a cab and landed at the home of the only “normal” person she knew in the United States. Her friend saw to it that she went into treatment and Sally came out a new person. Literally. As No Cure for Love opens, Sally is now Sarah Broughton, star of a television cop show. She is also getting creepy anonymous letters. Her agent contacts Detective Arvo Hughes of the LAPD’s Threat Management Unit to look into the letters. What follows is a well plotted, suspenseful and more than a little creepy book of cat and mouse. The point of view shifts from Sarah in the present to Sally in the past to her stalker giving readers just tiny peeks into Sally’s past while watching the stalker get closer and closer to Sarah. Will something in the notes help Sarah figure out who her stalker is? Will Detective Hughes unravel the puzzle of Sally’s past in time? Or will the stalker get tired of the game and act?
