Meanwhile, detective Peter Diamond finds himself in Sussex, much against his wishes. His irritating and often obtuse supervisor, Assistant Chief Constable Georgina Dallymore, has made Diamond accompany her on a home-office internal investigation. A Sussex detective has been suspended for failing to link the DNA evidence of a relative to a seven-year-old murder case - a bad breach of ethics. Diamond is less than thrilled to be heading out on a road trip with his boss to investigate a fellow officer, but he becomes much more interested in the case when he realizes who the suspended officer is - an old friend and not a person he knows to make mistakes.
As Diamond asks questions, he begins to notice unsettling connections between the cold case and the missing art teacher. Could the two mysteries be connected? How many other area disappearances have gone unnoticed and uninvestigated? Diamond and his hapless supervisor have stumbled into a web of related crimes. Will Diamond be able to disentangle them?

Lovesey Gets Better With Each New Book
...and Simon Prebble narrates with panache. Great plot & great narrator had me staying up all night to listen. This book brings back together two of Lovesey's best characters, Diamond - and I won't name the other because that would be an early reveal of part of the plot's tension. Having mourned the loss of two of the British Detective Novel's greatest writers recently (Ruth Rendell & PD James), I am heartened that Lovesey has in his last three books developed layers, style, and cultural references while maintaining the complexity of his plots and the endearing personalities of his leads.

A fun listen with good characters
This is my first inspector diamond novel. I enjoyed it immensely and will probably listen to other books by the author involving this character. The whodunit was well plotted and not obvious until towards the end.
