Summary

When a severed hand from the vault of Bath Abbey Churchyard arrives on Peter Diamond's desk, he is delighted to hear that, far from being a medieval relic, it is from the 1980s. But the vault is part of the house where Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was written, and a fanatical American professor is thwarting their investigation. Events are complicated even further when the professor's wife goes missing....
Highly suspicious of the professor, but unable to prove anything, Diamond concentrates on trying to identify the remains, with shocking result. But before he can get any further, the owner of Bath's largest antique emporium is brutally murdered - and the last person to see her alive was the Professor.
With consummate skill, wit and ingenuity, Peter Lovesey has crafted a whodunnit of brilliant complexity.

The best yet

The Peter Diamond series improves with time; the stories and characters become more believable as you get to know there and the storyline is a little stronger with each book. Well worth listening to.

Intriguing story, but.....

Peter Lovesey writes some great stories and I've throughly enjoyed those audible books in the series read by Michael Tudor Barnes. Unfortunately this production is spoilt by the less than convincing reading by Mr Whickam
