Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a woman is shot dead in Bath's Royal Victoria Park, it is Diamond who goes to the scene and finds that the victim is Stephanie, his wife.

Traumatised, grief-stricken and angry for justice, Diamond is told that this is one case he won't be allowed to work on. Not only that. As the victim's spouse, he is an obvious suspect. While the police put their efforts into checking his alibi, Diamond starts his own unauthorised investigation. Soon he is sifting the dust of his entire career. This is Diamond's most touching and demanding case.

Review:

"Lovesey takes his hero to emotional places he's never been before while constructing a plot of infernal ingenuity." Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Lovesey's writing is lucid and succinct, and he is a consummate story-teller." Colin Dexter, The Oldie

Synopsis:

Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond is confronted with a crime that hits too close to home.

Although a long-time fan of British detective books and movies, I have just discovered my first Peter Lovesey book: 'Diamond Dust'. After starting it I stayed up half the night to finish it. Interesting plot which kept me guessing right up to the end. Now I have a whole new series to read over the long winter nights ahead.
