Here is another well-plotted mystery from noted British mystery writer Peter Lovesey. When a police car goes off the road killing one of the officers and injuring another, Superintendent Peter Diamond is assigned to look into the case. At the scene a civilian on a motorized tricycle, who may have been the cause of the accident, is saved when Diamond administers CPR. However, Diamond soon begins to suspect that he may have saved the life of a serial killer.
Diamond is always a pleasure to spend time with, by turns irascible and cerebral, he is a good guide through the ins and outs of this surprising and complex plot. If you haven’t read Lovesey yet, you are in for a treat, and this is a fine place to start.
