Publisher's Summary

The corpse of a beautiful woman, clad in only a bathing suit, is found strangled to death on a popular Sussex beach. When she is finally identified, it turns out she was a top profiler for the National Crime Faculty who was working on the case of a serial killer. And though she was a Bath resident, the authorities don't want Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond to investigate the murder. How strange. What could they be trying to hide?

    "Another excellent installment of the series "

    The Peter Diamond series is one of my top three favorite book series along with Louise Penny's Three Pines series and Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files. There might not be any accounting for taste, but Peter Lovesey has a gift for wonderful character development and Simon Prebble is the perfect narrator for the series.

    "Good for a lazy listen"

    The story starts intriguingly enough then proceeds to amble along in a more relaxed fashion than I would have liked thru changing vignets that seem a bit disjointed.Each character possessed interesting qualities that I kept hoping would be expanded upon, but always fell short.
    All that being said, it's a good lazy afternoon read/listen when u want just enjoy a pretty good story without having to pay to much attention.

    "Misleading précis"

    Really good book, with complex red herrings. Typical Peter Diamond. Well worth the time. But I had to go back more than once to try to determine how the teaser applied -and it doesn't.
