The Secret Hangman, Paperback


Bath detective Peter Diamond is having woman trouble.

His boss wants him to find the missing daughter of one of her friends.

He is not enthusiastic. A woman calling herself his Secret Admirer wants to arrange a date in a pub.

He tries ignoring her. And his colleague, sexy Ingeborg Smith, distracts the murder squad from their duties.

No one ignores Ingeborg. Then a woman's body is found hanging from a playground swing, with a suspicious second ligature mark around her neck and a very colourful past.

As more hangings are discovered, Diamond is certain that a secret hangman is at work in the city ...Peter Lovesey shows why he is the master of the whodunnit in this thrilling tale of mystery, mayhem and murder most foul.
