This sixteenth adventure in the highly popular Peter Diamond series revolves around the Detective Superintendent investigating a mishap on behalf of the Professional Standards Department that involves two officers. On the way to a call the men's car spins off the roadway and one officer is killed and the other badly injured.

When he arrives at the scene, Diamond is horrified to discover that there is a third victim whose body has been overlooked. The man is found in the weeds by the side of the road and is still alive.

After administering CPR to save the third victim, Diamond does a little digging into who the man is and what he uncovers is quite startling. A number of mysterious deaths turn up and it appears that the individual hanging on to life support may indeed be a serial killer.

If you enjoy British police procedurals you'll find this not only a riveting but also a very satisfying read. This is vintage Diamond with a well defined protagonist and well designed plot.
