"The threads of Peter Lovesey's new Peter Diamond mystery, Upon a Dark Night, twist up so neatly they make a perfect hangman's noose-another triumph of plotting from this master of the classic puzzle form."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "Lovesey is . . . master of the traditional crime novel." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The characters are complex and well-drawn, the plot intricate but credible, the story well-told and the puzzles neatly tied up by the end."-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "An extraordinary combination of classic puzzle with a contemporary police procedural; an immensely satisfying work by one of Britain's foremost mystery novelists."-Houston Chronicle "Lovesey's latest Peter Diamond novel offers everything a fan of classic detective fiction could want."-Booklist A young woman is dumped, injured and unconscious, in a private hospital's parking lot. She is an amnesiac with no memory prior to her discovery by hospital personnel. Detective Inspector Peter Diamond of the Bath homicide squad is unwilling to become involved. He has other, more important cases to solve: A woman has plunged to her death from the roof of a local landmark while half the young people of Bath partied below, and an elderly farmer has shot himself. Are these apparent suicides really so, or are there sinister forces at work? And then he finds a connection to the amnesiac woman named, temporarily, Rose. Peter Lovesey is the author of 24 highly praised mysteries and has been awarded The Crime Writers' Association's Gold, Silver and Diamond Daggers, as well as many US honors. He lives in West Sussex, England.
