Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond is the last detective: a genuine gumshoe, committed to door stopping and deduction rather than fancy computer gadgetry. So when the naked body of a woman is found floating in the weeds in a lake near Bath with no one willing to identify her, no marks and no murder weapon, his sleuthing abilities are tested to the limit. Struggling with a jigsaw puzzle of truant choirboys, teddy bears, a black Mercedes and Jane Austen memorabilia, Diamond persists even after the powers-that-be have decided there's enough evidence to make a conviction.

Story

Difficult to like the protagonist.

Diamond is just angry, rude to everyone, and has a habit of breaking things for no fathomable reason. No redeeming qualities that I can see. Seems like someone headed for a Type-A Personality heart attack. Why spend my time with him?
