  1. I ve read and liked many of the books in the Peter Diamond series This one dares to be over the top I won t say why , but it fails because the underlying motive is obvious from the outset Iguessed the identity of the murderer but hoped there was something I d overlooked A bit farther on and this is a bit than halfway , it s quite clear that it could be no one else and that the murderer is, by definition, who the murderer is Not a page turner I ve been reading this series alongside a friend and s [...]


  2. For those following the Chief Inspector Diamond series, this is the one where he meets Paloma who becomes a recurring character in subsequent books It seems wildly improbable that she would recur, but if I tell you why, I ruin the best though somewhat predictable plot twist Lovsesey is guilty of spiking his series with offerings that have that whiff of repetition that pot boilers can give off The Secret Hangman is considerably less guilty of this failing than, say, Another One Goes Tonight, but [...]


  3. Peter Diamond faces a classic whodunnit in the spirit of Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes in The Secret Hangman This book is a great example of author Peter Lovesey s uncanny ability to blend classic mystery elements into a modern story, keeping his readers on the edge of their seats from the first page to the last.


  4. You re never too old to have a Secret Admirer, as Inspector Peter Diamond is about to discover He s still an open wound from the murder of his wife, but the damage is healing and he s a little intrigued But before he can get too wrapped up in the possibilities, he is faced with one of the strangest and most dreadful murders of his career Followed by another Followed by another Someone is killing couples or former couples first the wife, then the husband All of the victims are found strung up in [...]


  5. I ve recently read a couple Peter Diamond books and enjoyed them both They are well written in a sort of old fashioned style Which means that Lovesey isn t on a quest to conjure up the most disturbed characters he can imagine or the most superhuman crimefighers And that while there is a serial killer at work, this book doesn t have an absurdly frenetic pace or excessive chaos and blood Pleasantly, there are other, human things going on as well in amongst the crime story.I think the mix makes for [...]


  6. I ve read and enjoyed all of Peter Lovesey crime series starring Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond whose bailiwick is Bath, that gorgeous British city gem with its Georgian architecture In his latest outing, The Secret Hangman, overweight and middle aged Diamond has to endure the advances of a secret female admirer while, at the same time, trying to stop an executioner who is targeting and hanging couples The murderer first hangs the wife in a very public place and shortly does the same wit [...]


  7. Peter Diamond the feature character in these stories provides the reader with a credible touch of realism The author manages to create a perfect image of Bath and surrounding area The story line is gripping and the many twists and turns leave the reader hanging on to the end As with all in this series, Great Character, great story, beautifully written.
