On Lansdown Hill, near Bath, England, a battle between Roundheads and Cavaliers that took place over 350 years ago is annually reenacted. Two of the reenactors discover a skeleton that is female, headless, and only about twenty years old. One of them, a professor who played a Cavalier, is later found murdered. In the course of his investigation, Peter 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, but matters don’t pan out in accordance with her plans.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Peter Lovesey is the real deal. A top master of the police procedural British subgenre, he’s an ace at spinning out teasingly slow plot revelations…crisp prose and humane characterizations.”

    Seattle Times

  • “His voice works well at blending the story’s intense moments, such as the shooting of a colleague, into the quieter aspects of English life.”

    AudioFile

  • “Thanks to Lovesey’s nonpareil deftness, however, Diamond ultimately prevails over murder past and present. History, humor, inspired clues, maniacal twists, and a paean to the beauty of the Bath countryside. Lovesey, who’s won every prize going, deserves another for Diamond’s tenth.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “[Lovesey] has no peer in presenting a traditional mystery with all the clues hiding in plain sight.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review), praise for the series
