Publisher's Summary

A skeletal hand is unearthed in the vault under the Pump Room in Bath, England, near the site where Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein. Then a skull is excavated. The bones came from different corpses, and one is modern. Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond must solve a series of crimes including murder and forgery, requiring a knowledge of history, 19th-century art, literature...and human nature.

I think Diamonds best cases ever!

I've very much enjoyed this series having accidentally started into the first book thinking it was one of another authors books! Didn't mind because I really liked Inspector Diamond.

Every now and again I find one of them available on Audible which either hadn't been available when I cruised through the series originally. This story was just great as Ingeborg gets her break. Subtle tongue in cheek present as ever.

Grumpy Detective

Peter Diamond is grumpy and sometimes self serving. But he's clever and determined and I like him. I started reading these books many years ago and have revisited them in audio format.

You won't find non-stop action in these stories. You will fine intricate plots, and interesting, sometimes humorous, characters. I'd describe this series as a cozy police procedural - no graphic violence, no rough language, good stories, a bit a humor, and very entertaining.

Michael Healy's narration is excellent.
