Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0892965517, Hardcover)Peter Diamond is unemployed and down-and-out, but his old CID department comes knocking when they need him. John Mountjoy, a murderer, has broken out of prison and taken a hostage -- and the only person he'll talk to is Diamond, who arrested him four years earlier. Unless Diamond can follow a very cold murder trail to find another killer and clear Mountjoy's name, another woman will die.

In Bath, England, an escaped murderer kidnaps a police chief's daughter and the chief appeals for help to Peter Diamond, the ex-constable who put the murderer away. A moment of sweet satisfaction for Diamond, now pushing supermarket carts, having been fired from the force for being cheeky to the chief. By the author of Diamond Solitaire.
