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.

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.

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.
