2.5 stars. Unsympathetic characters. Only got interesting near the end.

Peter Diamond is an old-school detective who is suspicious of technology and apparently making deductions from clues. He seems to think that the only way of solving a case is to interrogate people.

The dead body of a woman is found floating in a lake and Peter Diamond is called on to investigate. Sections of the story are retold from the POV of two of the suspects in the middle - I felt that made it a bit repetitive.

I'm not too sure I liked the ending... since it doesn't really explain what facts led Diamond to arrive at that conclusion, though it does make sense... but overall it was ok.… (lisätietoja)

Enjoyable mystery' light and breezy with sufficient violence to avoid being a cozy , a fun plot, a hint of the supernatural and period color

narrative style reminded me of Wilkie Collin's moonstone. Seeing incidents several times from different points of view. I didn't feel the author provided distinctive voices for the different narrators, which lessened the effectiveness. I also didn't particularly like the detective until towards the end. Will probably give others a try , though, overall a satisfactory read
