To my mind, this is the best book in a British series I'm very fond of. It was one of my choices for Best Of 2006. Easily read in one long night since it is almost impossible to put down. Beginning with a body found dead in the sand in full view of a beach-load of sunbathers and following through to the surprising denouement, author Lovesey maneuvers the plot's various twists and turns with ease, never giving anything away. Diamond is at his irascible best, but not overly so as in some of the other books in the series. This is a police procedural for people who don't, necessarily, like police procedurals. Either/or, I loved it.

Excellent! Keeps you guessing until the end.

One of the group's favorite books. We seem to always enjoy English police procedurals and this one was well plotted with interesting characters. Red herrings sprinkled throughout the book kept us guessing.

Interesting characters, although i was able to guess who the murderer was.

Unlike so many other series, this one just gets better with every installment. If you are a fan of the British detective novel genre, you will not be disappointed.

I am so happy that i discovered this series of mysteries. I am reading them from the beginning (The Last Detective is the first of the series). These books are true mysteries, well written with a main character who is a very real person with thoughts and emotions, someone you can imagine knowing. The mysteries are intriguing and have you guessing until the very end. I am quite addicted to them by now, and I just wish there were more of them. If you like a good story, great characters, excellent writing and complicated mysteries, these are for you.
