Peter Lovesey presents Book 6 in his Inspector Peter Diamond Investigation series.

Full Synopsis
A skeletal hand is unearthed in the vault under the Pump Room in Bath, England, near the site where Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein. Then a skull is excavated. The bones came from different corpses, and one is modern. Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond must solve a series of crimes including murder and forgery, requiring a knowledge of history, nineteenth-century art, literature . . . and human nature.

"Everything the cerebral puzzle-addict craves, from tempting red herrings to literary arcana to deliciously plotted surprises." ---Kirkus Starred Review

"The story crackles with wit and urbanity, snappy dialogue and deeper, fouler doings . . . A stunning tale of the macabre and the mundane.” ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“Exquisitely intricate.” ---New York Times

“One of the delights of contemporary crime fiction.” ---Wall Street Journal
