Mystery Police Procedural
Peter Diamond takes a dive down among the dead men to
solve a seven-year-old murder case in the latest
installment of Peter Lovesey's classic procedural series.
In a Sussex town on the south coast of England, a widely
disliked art teacher at a posh private girls’ school
disappears without explanation. None of her students miss
her boring lessons, especially since her replacement
is a devilishly hunky male teacher with a fancy car. But
then her name shows up on a police missing persons
list. What happened to Miss Gibbon, and why does no one
seem to care?
Meanwhile, detective Peter Diamond finds himself in
Sussex, much against his wishes. His irritating and often
obtuse supervisor, Assistant Chief Constable Georgina
Dallymore, has made Diamond accompany her on a Home
internal investigation. A Sussex detective has been
suspended for failing to link DNA evidence of a relative
a seven-year-old murder case—a bad breach of ethics.
Diamond is less than thrilled to be heading out on a road
trip with his boss to investigate a fellow officer, but
he becomes much more interested in the case when he
realizes who the suspended officer is—an old friend, and
not a person he knows to make mistakes.
As Diamond asks questions, he begins to notice unsettling
connections between the cold case and the missing art
teacher. Could the two mysteries be connected? How many
other area disappearances have gone unnoticed and
uninvestigated? Diamond and his hapless supervisor have
stumbled into a web of related crimes. Will Diamond be
able to disentangle them?
