Peter Diamond, head of thenbsp;Criminal Investigation Divisionnbsp;in scenic Bath, England,nbsp;isnbsp;investigating the murder of a young woman whose body has been found in the canal, the only clue to her identity a 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.
nbsp;
Meanwhile, strange things are happening to jobbingnbsp;violist Mel Farran, who finds himself scouted bynbsp;a very elite classical quartet--one whose previous violist disappeared without a trace.nbsp;Despite the mystery shrouding the group, the chance to join is too good tonbsp;pass up, and Mel finds himself in a cushy residency at Bath Spa University with the quartet--and embroiled innbsp;the unusually musical murder investigation.nbsp;As the story unfolds in fugue-like counterpoint, Peter and Mel both learn frightening secrets about fandom and about what it takes to survive in the cutthroat world of professional musicians.
nbsp;
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.
