When a severed hand from the vault of Bath Abbey Churchyard arrives on Peter Diamond's desk, he is delighted to hear that, far from being a medieval relic, it is from the 1980s. But the vault is part of the house where Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was written, and a fanatical American professor is thwarting their investigation. Events are complicated even further when the professor's wife goes missing....
Highly suspicious of the professor, but unable to prove anything, Diamond concentrates on trying to identify the remains, with shocking result. But before he can get any further, the owner of Bath's largest antique emporium is brutally murdered - and the last person to see her alive was the Professor.
With consummate skill, wit and ingenuity, Peter Lovesey has crafted a whodunnit of brilliant complexity.

The Peter Diamond series improves with time; the stories and characters become more believable as you get to know there and the storyline is a little stronger with each book. Well worth listening to.
I am an elderly widow, and I so enjoy Audible as I can relax and listen to all the lovely books I would otherwise find difficulty in reading
A good read (listen)
I can't remember a specific scene which was more memorable than others
The book held my attention throughout
Enjoyable creepy tale
