What links his misfortune to the mysterious disappearance of an art teacher at a private school for girls in Chichester?

Critic reviews

"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)

Loved this book - perfect listening whilst crafting

I have a few audio and kindle books by Peter Lovesey but my most favourite are the Inspector Diamond series and this one did not disappoint.

Download it and enjoy a few ours if great narration with a story that keeps you guessing to the end !

So far this is my favourite Peter Diamond book!

I loved this book. The interplay between Peter Diamond and his boss is just hilarious with Peter's machinations to keep her at bay. The story was so addictive I was taking my iPad from room to room sp that I could keep on listening. I do enjoy Peter Lovesey's detective but this has been my favourite listen - and oh dear I think there are only two more in the series.
