Product description

Review

No-one has done this kind of thing better since Dorothy L. Sayers ... A must for crime buffs. (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Another well-crafted story with the requisite number of red herrings and an ending that satisfies as well as leaves you wanting more. Recommended. (CRIME TIME)

This is an excellent murder-mystery for those who like a plot to exercise the brain. (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

The writing is as smooth a polished steel, and the small touches that reveal character, especially the memorable Hen, approach genuis. This is Lovesey at his best. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

Book Description

The discovery of a woman's body on a Sussex beach seems irrelevant to the police force in Bath, until she is identified as a resident of that city, and the unique investigative talents of Inspector Peter Diamond are brought into play.
