PIECE OF MY HEART
“Piece of My Heart” begins on Sept. 8, 1969, with the discovery of a young woman’s dead body in a sleeping bag. Cause of death: stab wound to the heart. She had a cornflower painted on her right cheek. The setting is a muddy, trash-strewn field that has just been the site of a three-day music festival featuring Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin. The investigating officer is Detective Inspector Stanley Chadwick, a hard-nosed but haunted World War II veteran who finds himself baffled by the social changes he sees all around him. Robinson skillfully intercuts the story of Chadwick’s case with Banks’s investigation into a present-day murder. The separate time frames give the author a forum for noting changes in mores between the two periods as he did in “Close to Home,” another Banks mystery that reaches back into the 60’s, which were Robinson’s teenage years.
