Peter Diamond is my favourite fictional detective and I think that this latest book is one of the best of the series.
A badly decomposed body is recovered from a canal in Bath. The death could be the result of an accident or suicide, but Diamond suspects murder and a major incident investigation gets underway. Soon Bath CID are investigating three murders.
At around the same time viola player Mel Farran receives a mysterious approach to join a renowned string quartet.
This is an excellent whodunnit with believable characters and there's a good Agatha Christie style reveal at the end. I enjoyed the look into the world of classical musicians, Peter Lovesey has obviously done a lot of research. I have been inspired to listen to Beethoven's Grosse Fugue.
Michael Tudor Barnes' narration was very good as usual.
Could we have the first books of the series on audio please Audible?

Another good story. Plenty if interesting characters though a little less believable than the last few
