One-time police detective Peter Diamond loses his job as a security guard when he fails to spot a small Japanese child hiding in the furniture department of Harrods. Weeks later, she’s still unclaimed; Diamond is unable to forget the frightened eyes of the silent little girl and takes on the challenge of uncovering her identity. Now Diamond is back in the sleuthing business, following a trail that leads from London to New York to Tokyo and to a shocking climax that may shatter his heart or cost him his life.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Hanna | 2/3/2014

    " Actually I should have given it 4 stars, but after "The Last Detective" which was amazing this book disappointed me a bit. I expected a great book, I got 'only' a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kae Cheatham | 12/4/2013

    " Really well written, although the story got a bit far-fetched at the end--almost as if the author were making fun of himself. Still a marvelously involved and told story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Andrew Vachss | 11/7/2013

    " Classy, self-assured, and delicately-rendered UK series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Beth | 10/15/2013

    " Yes, this book has a completely ridiculous plot, but I still loved it! Sumo wrestlers, autistic children, the mob, pharmaceutical companies, all mixed together. Preposterous, but I read it in a day and can't wait to read the next in the series. "
