Publisher's Summary

The third Peter Diamond investigation.
John Mountjoy has escaped from prison and kidnapped the chief constable's daughter. The only person he'll parley with is Detective Peter Diamond, who arrested him four years earlier for the murder of a young journalist. Mountjoy, who still maintains his innocence, has a simple request for Diamond. All the detective has to do is find the real killer and clear Mountjoy's name, and the hostage will be free to go. But in the intervening four years, the trail has gone cold and memories have turned hazy, making the hunt for the killer even more complicated the second time around. Will Diamond get to the bottom of the cold case before another life is lost?

Almost didn't read, but glad I did!

After the lackluster second novel in this series, I didn't plan to read another. Fortunately for me, I ran out of good novels to read and decided to give Mr. Lovesey another chance. I'm glad I did.

This novel is exciting, thoughtful, and an example of excellent police work. The main characters are charming, likeable, and intelligent, and the villains are excellent and completely believable. Against nearly impossible odds, Peter Diamond sets out to solve another mystery and succeeds in thrilling fashion. I cannot give higher praise for a novel and highly recommend it!

Upon completing this novel, I immediately rushed to my audible account and bought the next book in the series. The only disappointing news I can report is that the next book in this series is not read by Simon Prebble, who I think has done an outstanding job over the first three novels. My only consolation is that Simon Prebble returns later in the series to resurrect his role as narrator.

If you liked either of the first two novels in this series, I think you'll love this one. Enjoy!
