Peter Diamond, head of Bath CID, takes a city break in Vienna, where his favourite film, The Third Man , was set, but everything goes wrong and his companion, Paloma, calls a halt to their relationship.

Meanwhile, strange things are happening to jobbing musician Mel Farran, who finds himself scouted by methods closer to the spy world than the concert platform. The chance of joining a once-famous string quartet in a residency at Bath Spa University is too tempting for Mel to refuse.

Then a body is found in the city canal, and the only clue to the dead woman's identity is the tattoo of a music note on one of her teeth. For Diamond, who wouldn't know a Stradivarius from a French horn, the investigation is his most demanding ever. Three mysterious deaths need to be probed while his own personal life is in free fall...

Peter Lovesey has been hailed by the critics as 'superlative', 'a master of the genre', 'never puts a foot wrong' and the Peter Diamond series as 'one of the most enjoyable police series around'. This new case for the much-loved detective will bring new praise and much satisfaction for his legions of fans.

Enough of this already. I was impressed by some of the early stuff but things have gone downhill since. Professionals bumbling around lost looking for a solution to a crime; then some mysterious person walks in and explains what happened; then Peter Diamond says, "I knew that." is lame.

A Crime novel involving a string quartet and the murder of a Japanese woman. Peter Diamond is a very likeable character and this was a good book.
