Diamond Dust Reviews

  • Alejandrina

    One of the best detective stories in recent times. Lovesey threads several story lines so expertly you really have no clue where the thing is going until almost the very end; characters are very credible.

  • Snap

    Probably more a 3 1/2 stars, but I'll give it the whole 4. Peter Diamond is a very human detective...never more so than in Diamond Dust. Fully dimensional characters, juicy plotting, emotionally wrenching. Murder. Betrayal. Tension. Diamond Dust has it all.

    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.

    My first introduction to DI Peter Diamond and the writer. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be searching more of this series. Well paced thriller,hard to predict plot outcomes and cleverly weaves characters. A perfect crime book.

  • Susan

    Murder strikes too close to home for Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond, and he is determined to know why, no matter what it takes. A well written, suspenseful read with numerous twists, but for me, there was an essential improbability in the eventual, surprising solution.
