Publisher's Summary

Peter Diamond, the Bath detective, is having woman trouble. His boss wants him to find a missing person, the daughter of one of her friends in the choir. Another woman, who calls herself his secret admirer, wants to set up a meeting in a local pub. Then there is sexy Ingeborg Smith, the ex-journalist detective constable, distracting the murder squad from their duties. Murder is suspected when a woman's body is found hanging from a playground swing in Sydney Gardens and a suspicious second ligature mark is found around her neck. As Diamond investigates the victim's colourful past, more hangings are discovered. And soon he is certain that a secret hangman is at work in the city.

Good character development

This is a classic modern english police murder mystery. The hero is the usual fat, grumpy, partly clever, partly stupid detective superintendent aided by a big squad.

Despite the predictability of some elements of the plot I enjoyed the book. Certainly very well read, but also reasonable character development, some reasonable elements of humor and some ideas developed. Worth a listen and I am almost over the line to listening to another by the same author
