Publisher's Summary

In the small hours of a Sunday morning in the city of Bath, a policeman on beat duty is shot dead by an unseen gunman - the third killing of an officer in Somerset in a matter of weeks. The emergency services are summoned. Ambitious to arrest the Somerset Sniper, the duty inspector, Ken Lockton, seals the crime scene, which is confined by the river on one side and a massive retaining wall on the other. He discovers the murder weapon in a garden - and is himself attacked and left for dead.

Enter Peter Diamond, Bath's burly CID chief. Middle-aged and not built for action, he pits himself and his team against the killer in a hunt that will test his physical powers to the limit....

Keeps you guessing.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to people who like stories about police trying to solve a crime. Has the right amount of action for males, and enough story for those who believe a book should have a plot.

What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

I really enjoy Simon Prebble's performance of this book. In fact, I often look up the books of which he is the narrator, just to listen to his performance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Neither laugh nor cry, but I enjoyed it.

Not the Best in Series

While I enjoy the Peter Diamond series in general, I didn't care for the side story of the blog writer. I think it was more fun to write than to read. Peter Diamond as curmudgeon is especially strong in this one.
