Publisher's Summary

On Lansdown Hill, near Bath, England, a battle between Roundheads and Cavaliers that took place over 350 years ago is annually reenacted. Two of the reenactors discover a skeleton that is female, headless, and only about twenty years old. One of them, a professor who played a Cavalier, is later found murdered. In the course of his investigation, Peter Diamond butts heads with the group of vigilantes who call themselves the Lansdown Society, discovering in the process that his boss Georgina is a member. She resolves to sideline Diamond, but matters don't pan out in accordance with her plans.

Critic Reviews

"Diamond remains one of the most realistic and human of fictional sleuths....While some readers will anticipate the solution with little trouble, sharp prose and characterization make this another winner in this enduring series." ( Publishers Weekly)

Skeleton Hill

Once I adjusted to the new reader I did enjoy the
story. Most unusual ending.
