"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.
