Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Crime Writers Association Silver Dagger, the Barry Award and the Macavity Award.

'Darling, if ever I've met a group of potential murderers anywhere, it's the Bloodhounds.' Thus says one of the members of the Bloodhounds of Bath, a society that meets in a crypt to discuss crime novels. But to their latest recruit, they seem just a gaggle of dotty misfits, until one of them reveals that he is in possession of an immensely valuable stamp, recently stolen from the Postal Museum.

Then theft is overtaken by murder when the corpse of one of the Bloodhounds is found in a locked houseboat, with the only key in the possession of a man with a perfect alibi. Burly Peter Diamond finds himself embroiled in a mystery evoking the classic crime puzzles of John Dickson Carr.

    "Utterly Spoilt By Narration"

    So disappointed with this book.. I think I shall have to return it as I can't even finish it. I love Peter Diamond books & have most of them. Michael Tudor- Barnes is the master of narration in these books & I am sorry the new narrator didn't meet with my expectations... Just droned on & on & it was hard to distinguish which character was who after a while....I have tried hard to listen to this, but to no avail.
    This I don't recommend.

    "The wrong narrator... I'm"

    The story itself is great - Lovesey is a master at the genre - but the change of narrator has seriously diminished the overall enjoyment. I have listened to every available Peter Lovesey/Diamond book but if this one had been my first encounter it would have been my last. Peter Wickham's narration is reminiscent of a spoof reading of a novel and the falsetto voice he assumes for the female characters is grating and tiresome. The original narrator for the series, Michael Tudor Barnes, gave a superb interpretation of the characters of Diamond and the other players within each story. Sadly Peter Wickham has not been able to continue the legacy, and it seems that he has been used as the narrator for more of the Diamond novels soon to be released. I wonder if Peter Lovesey has heard the new Audible renditions of his books ...

    "Good story"

    Good story as usual though the twist at the end is a little too unbelievable. Worth listening to anyway!
