Product description


Lovesey has an extraordinary talent for picking up the conventions of the classic English detective novel and delivering them with an entirely contemporary twist. (Val McDermid)

No one has done this kind of thing better since Dorothy L. Sayers. (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

Contemporary Bath, a twenty-year-old murder, the missing diaries of Mary Shelley and the irascible detective, Peter Diamond, are the main ingredients in this lushly serpentine mystery
