Read full description of the books Diamond Dust:Detective Inspector Peter Diamond of the Bath CID is turning fifty and his wife is planning a surprise party for him. Peter has recently solved a crime of murder and after watching the man sentenced for life, he is assaulted on the courthouse steps by the convicted man's girlfriend who scratches his face with her long nails and then starts hitting him causing him to fall down. As she continues pummeling him, he realizes he is being watched and does not retaliate for fear someone will snap a picture. Then when he reports to the CID, his Assistant Chief Constable tells him he is transferring him to Bristol to form part of an organized task force. Although he is disappointed, he rushes to a murder scene and discovers the victim is his wife Stephanie. One would think this would surely end his streak of bad luck, but next he is being investigated for her murder. He swears to find her killer even though he is barred from the case and partners up with a cop from a previous precinct. When another wife of a policeman is found murdered with two shots to the head like his wife, he realizes he is facing major crimes to solve. Peter Lovesey is among the top of crime novelists and his intricate plots and witty dialogue make him irresistible to readers of this genre.
