Publisher's Summary

A nightmare discovery in the boot of a stolen BMW plunges car thief Danny Stapleton into the worst trouble of his life. What links his misfortune to the mysterious disappearance of an art teacher at a private school for girls in Chichester? Orders from above push Peter Diamond of Bath CID into investigating a police corruption case in the Chichester force, and he soon finds himself reluctantly dealing with spirited schoolgirls, eccentric artists and his formidable old colleague, Hen Mallin.


What the Critics Say

"In his lengthy career, veteran novelist Peter Lovesey has supplied the most diverting (and elegantly written) crime fiction." (Good Book Guide)
"Diamond is a wonderfully rounded character whose lines are witty and whose observations about people's characters and motives are brilliantly insightful. Vintage Diamond mystery, spiced by his comic encounters with his supervisor: a must for devotees of character-driven British crime fiction." (Booklist)

As great as ever

I read all Peter Diamond's novels and I must say this is one of the finest. With Lovesey you know he never puts anything in his books that doesn't turno out later to be of some relevance, and it was so this time too... down to the smallest details. The narrator is simply fantastic.
