Publisher's Summary

A young woman is dumped, injured and unconscious, in a private hospital's parking lot. She is an amnesiac with no memory prior to her discovery by hospital personnel. Detective Inspector Peter Diamond of the Bath homicide squad is unwilling to become involved. He has other, more important cases to solve: a woman has plunged to her death from the roof of a local landmark while half the young people of Bath partied below, and an elderly farmer has shot himself.
Are these apparent suicides what they seem, or are there sinister forces at work? And might the amnesiac woman hold the key to both cases?


What the Critics Say

"Such a tangled plot would snare an author of less skill, but Lovesey maintains virtuosic control and delivers an unmistakable highlight in a long career already well-garlanded with awards and acclaim." (Publishers Weekly)

Simon Prebble is Peter Diamond/New Narrator Bad

Would you try another book from Peter Lovesey and/or Michael Healy?

I have listened to all audiobook recordings of Peter Lovesey's great Peter Diamond series with Simon Prebble. Michael Healy is totally miscast in this book. I tried to listen to the audiobook, but couldn't do it. The narration just ruined the audiobook.

Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Lovesey again?

Yes, Peter Lovesey is a great writer.

How could the performance have been better?

We need Simon Prebble.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Upon a Dark Night?

I hardly completed a chapter before returning this book. I really can't comment on the book.

Any additional comments?

I would like the entire Peter Diamond series recorded by Simon Prebble, but I guess that won't ever happen. Onward to the Kindle versions then.

Ada Shaftsberry is the best!

Loved the story. Ada has to be one of my favorite Lovesey characters. Didn't like this narriator as much, but still enjoyable.
