Publisher's Summary

A young woman emerges from a coma. Who is she, and why was she dumped unconscious in a hospital car park upon a dark night? She is unable to recall anything, even her name. Then Ada Shaftsbury, a boisterous shoplifter she meets in a homeless hostel, takes up her cause and names her Rose.

Peter Diamond is already investigating a suspicious death - a woman has plunged from the roof of Bath's Royal Crescent during a party, and none of the guests seem to know who she is. Badgered by Ada and galvanised by another gruesome death, Diamond takes on the case and is soon forced to admit that Rose is the key. But she has disappeared, and Diamond's own dark night is just beginning.

In a mystery of stunning complexity, Peter Lovesey amply demonstrates his gifts as the grand master of the contemporary whodunit.

    "Brilliant"

    This is only my second Peter Lovesey, following Peter Diamond as he investigates what at first thought to be a suicide.
    This is a brilliant story, very well told and narrated. There are so many twists, turns and blind alleys. It keeps you guessing until very close to the end.
    Peter Diamond, a grumpy old man of the first order, is very amusing but I laughed out loud at Ada, one of the characters that weaves her way in and out of the story.
    This is one of the best who dunnit books I have ever read or listened to. I have listened to it several times already and if this one is anything to go by I will be buying more from Mr Lovesey

    "More believable than the last one!"

    Another good story with its usual twists and turns though Wigfall comes off badly - do they really come as incompetent as him?
