NO CURE FOR LOVE

Peter Robinson, No Cure For Love. Viking, 1995.

Set mostly in LA and the victim's home in Santa Monica, with a Christmas holiday to Yorkshire and a police investigation in San Francisco, NO CURE FOR LOVE departs Canadian writer Peter Robinson's Yorkshire crime series featuring Inspector Banks. I'm a great fan, and of the television versions, with the Inspector played by former Ballykissangel priest Stephen Tompkinson. No Cure is a fairly routine stalker story, escalating letters to fragile actor Sarah Broughton (aka Sally Bolton), gifts of bodies, alternating points of view between victim, detective, and suspect, warped and delusional extras. A satisfying twist.
