"It is past midnight when two callers come knocking at the London flat of down-and-out, long-out-of-work Peter Diamond. When they turn out to be two CID men from his former police division of Avon and Somerset, he's baffled. When they order him to accompany them, he's mad as hell at being rousted from his warm bed - and intrigued. When it turns out his old department has an emergency only he can handle, he can barely stop himself from saying "I told you so."" "John Mountjoy, a woman-hating murderer Diamond arrested four years earlier has broken out of prison and taken a CID officer's daughter hostage. His demand is to talk to Peter Diamond. His reason? He wants Diamond to clear his name, insisting he never brutally stabbed a beautiful reporter to death and filled her mouth with roses as a macabre touch. But he will kill the hostage, unless Diamond gets the proof to overturn his conviction." "Does this mean Diamond will be an official CID man again? With even his old enemies in the precinct welcoming his assistance, Diamond is in the cat-bird's seat if he can pull off what seems impossible: to follow an old, very cold trail and miraculously come up with a new killer. Now, with time running out, Diamond will either fall flat on his face - or prove his real worth. Pure 10 carat genius. The real thing. A Diamond of outstanding detection."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

display_description The third Peter Diamond investigation
John Mountjoy has escaped from prison and kidnapped the chief constable's daughter. The only person he'll parley with is Detective Peter Diamond, who arrested him four years earlier for the murder of a young journalist. Mountjoy, who still maintains his innocence, has a simple request for Diamond. All the detective has to do is find the real killer and clear Mountjoy's name, and the hostage will be free to go. But in the intervening four years, the trail has gone cold and memories have turned hazy, making the hunt for the killer even more complicated the second time around. Will Diamond get to the bottom of the cold case before another life is lost?
