Short Synopsis
Peter Lovesey presents Book 5 in his Inspector Peter Diamond Investigation series.

Full Synopsis
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 what they seem, or are there sinister forces at work? And might the amnesiac woman hold the key to both cases?

"Such a tangled plot would snare an author of less skill, but Lovesey maintains virtuosic control and delivers an unmistakable highlight in a long career already well-garlanded with awards and acclaim." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Everything a fan of classic detection could want . . . Diamond's curmudgeonly bearing, taste for beer, and tendency to browbeat Julie will evoke Inspector Morse, and fans of the PBS series Prime Suspect will find much to enjoy in Lovesey's care with procedural detail." ---Booklist

"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." ---New York Times
