Lovesey's latest Peter Diamond procedural (after Down Among the Dead Men) has the Bath detective outside of his normal purview when he is asked to conduct an internal investigation into a fatal crash involving two officers responding to a call at the end of their shift. To Diamond's horror and astonishment, he finds an almost lifeless pensioner who must have been involved in the accident and resuscitates him using CPR. However, as he looks further into what the elderly man was doing out late at night on a motorized tricycle, he begins to wonder if he might have saved the life of a serial killer. In tracing the events of that evening, Diamond stumbles onto something larger and deadlier than the original investigation warranted.
VERDICT Lovesey delivers a page-turner complete with a likable protagonist whose encounters with authority bring humor to a whodunit with an amazing conclusion. [See Prepub Alert, 2/1/16.]
