Publisher's Summary

Battle and burial are built into the history of Lansdown Hill, so it is no great shock when part of a skeleton is unearthed there. But Peter Diamond, Bath's Head of CID, can't ignore the fresh corpse found close to the folly known as Beckford's Tower.

The hill becomes the setting for one of his most puzzling cases, involving golf, horseracing, Civil War re-enactment and the Cyrillic alphabet. Inevitably, Diamond butts heads with the group of vigilantes who call themselves the Lansdown Society, discovering in the process that his boss Georgina is a member. She resolves to sideline Diamond by sending him to Bristol and handing the skeleton investigation to his deputy, Keith Halliwell. Fortunately, matters don't pan out as Georgina plans.

    "Well read entertaining detective story."

    I liked the story and narrator. Very well read. Easy to listen to. Its that elusive 'perfect' partnership - well written interesting story, with an equal perfect pitch narrator .
    Would thoroughly recommend to fans of this genre and anyone else who'd appreciate these attributes.

    "They get better!"

    This was a believable plot, well executed with enough twists and turns to keep even the most experienced crime novel reader guessing.
