Before you discovered DCI Banks, Dectective Arvo Hughes was on the
case in this vintage standalone crime thriller from Peter Robinson.
As a detective in the LAPD Threat Management Unit, Arvo Hughes has
dealt with every kind of stalker there is - and in 1990s Hollywood,
he's not short of work. But when it comes to TV star Sarah
Broughton, who has been receiving unsettling anonymous letters,
even Arvo cannot find a pattern in this stalker's behaviour. The
letters seemed harmless enough, until the actress discovers a
mutilated body in the sand right outside her Malibu home. Certain
that Sarah's stalker must have met her before, Arvo realises his
only chance to catch the killer before he gets closer to Sarah is
to delve into her past - but nothing is straightforward in this
case, and the squeaky-clean star seems to be keeping all memories
of a shady history locked away ...
