Publisher's Summary

Two police officers are about to head home after a long night shift when they receive one last call. En route to investigate, the patrol car spins off the road, killing one of the exhausted cops and leaving the other in critical condition. Detective Peter Diamond is assigned to look into the case. His supervisor is desperately hoping Diamond will not discover the officers were at fault. Instead Diamond discovers something even worse - a civilian on a motorized tricycle was involved in the crash and has been lying on the side of the road for hours. Diamond administers CPR, but the man's fate is unclear.

Diamond becomes suspicious of the civilian victim and begins a private inquiry that leads to a trail of uninvestigated deaths. As the man lingers on life support, Diamond must wrestle with the fact that he may have saved the life of a serial killer.

A bit confusing but clever

I love Simon Preble and always enjoy his narration. The story was a little more convoluted than other Peter Diamond books but it was very cleverly done and demonstrated that, indeed, sometimes older is wiser.

Complicated

If you can follow a plot line with multiple characters, you just might enjoy this police procedural. Simon Prebble narrates beautifully, although, even with my volume in the highest settibg, I sometimes had trouble hearing him.

My Favorite Peter Diamond Book

I've read a number of earlier books in this series. I liked them all, some better than others. This book is the 16th in the series and, for me, the best one yet!

The plot is Inventive and different from anything else I've read. I'm reluctant to say more - I don't want to spoil the surprises. It was difficult for me to stop listening because I couldn't imagine what was coming next.

Peter Diamond seems to have mellowed a little. He isn't quite as abrasive as he was in some earlier books. Time has mellowed him.

This isn't "action packed", but the pace is steady. There are no "gory details" or rude language.

If you've enjoyed other books in this series I think you'll like this one.

Couldn't hold my interest. Returned

Normally enjoy the series, and think the narrator is excellent but somehow this was just too far fetched without having a driving plot to carry it along. I don't expect high literature from this series but somehow the multiple detective theme bogged down the plot here so it wasn't even entertaining.

Great Story. Classic Peter Diamond at his best!!

Peter Lovesey and Simon Prebble make an incredible team. Lovesey’s ability to summon the best out of his characters to draw you in is at its best in Another One Goes Tonight: Peter Diamond. Brilliant!!

Plodding police procedural. Excellent narrator.

I've previous listened only to Book #3 in this series, but since this Book #16 carried a rating of 4.4, I thought I would give it a try. I can't say I disliked it, but I didn't enjoy it enough to want to read others. The mystery is initally interesting but it unfolds very slowly. Even though it is not inordinately long (11 hrs and 16 mins), I really got tired of all the dead ends and misdirections. The denouement was less demonstrated by action but explained by Diamond to his colleagues through his remarkable inductive leaps. In case the reader didn't appreciate Peter's brilliance, the author has his subordinates remind us through thoughts unspoken.

Altogether it got to be a bit much, and once again, I probably wouldn't have finished it except for the extraordinary narration by Simon Prebble. Peculiarly, I generally have great patience with police procedurals but this particular series is not for me. Ironically, the series might make a good TV series, since, to be dramatically successful and conform to a reasonable length of time, the screenplay for each episode would likely have to move along more rapidly and contain more action than the book.

Love this series

I love the Peter Diamond series .These books have been in my library a long time they are old favorites I have listened to several times . This one has a great plot and a few twists and turns that keep you guessing and Simon Prebble is a great narrator.
