In the small hours of a Sunday morning in the city of Bath, a policeman on beat duty is shot dead by an unseen gunman—the third killing of an officer in Somerset in a matter of weeks. The assassinations are the work of a sniper who seems to be everywhere and nowhere at once, always a step ahead.

The emergency services are summoned. Ambitious to arrest the Somerset Sniper, the duty inspector, Ken Lockton, seals the crime scene, which is confined by the river on one side and a massive retaining wall on the other. He discovers the murder weapon in a garden—and is himself attacked and left for dead.

Enter Peter Diamond, Bath’s burly CID chief. Middle-aged and not built for action, he pits himself and his team against the killer in a hunt that will test his physical powers to the limit—for the evidence is starting to suggest that the killer just may be one of Britain’s finest.

    " This wasn't a bad book but I've enjoyed his previous works in this series much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Michael Lassell | 2/13/2014

    " I'm a longtime fan of Peter Lovesey's Inspector Diamond books, but the last one, STAGESTRUCK, struck me as so inferior that I thought the series had run its course. COP TO CORPSE is a return to the best of Lovesey/Diamond, so I'm glad I gave it a chance. Compelling, fast read. "

    " Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond is on the track of a cop killer: a sniper who has killed three uniformed cops on the beat, all in Bath. Diamond is an inteesting character, and his struggles with Chief Super Gull make a wryly funny break of pace from the grim nature of the crime. There are a coiuple of good chases, but, finally, some good police work. "
