Peter Diamond is constantly butting heads with the new forensic methods replacing the tried and true investigative techniques. When a body shows up and the mystery deepens, his humiliating failure may turn out to be the only way to succeed.
This was a great introduction to Peter Diamond. A fun crime novel filled with unexpected twists, moments of sheer pleasure, and a satisfying conclusion that made me turn to the rest of the fifteen books in the series with anticipation. So glad it was re-released!
