Description
"The doctor asks, "So how do you cope with stress?" Peter Diamond, whose blood pressure rises when his work-rate falls, proves his fitness by investigating two suspicious deaths. An unidentified woman has plunged from the roof of the Royal Crescent, and in a village nearby an elderly farmer is found shot through the head." "With these puzzlers on his plate instead of his beloved omelets, Diamond doesn't have the stomach for distractions, particularly Ada Shaftsbury. Of a similar girth and temperament to the big man himself, Ada has a talent for interfering and being a pain in the rear. Now she is complaining that a fellow resident of the Harmer House homeless shelter is missing. The girl, called Rose, was found in a hospital parking lot suffering from amnesia." "An extraordinary mixture of clues will soon link Rose to Diamond's two new cases. And Peter Diamond will face a killer driven by obsession and about to take the great detective on a breathless ride into the dark night of a remorseless mind."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

display_description "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."The New York Times Book Review
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?
