Shortlisted for the Barry AwardWhen a woman is shot dead in Bath's Royal Victoria Park, it is Detective Peter Diamond who answers the call first.
He is able to identify the victim immediately: his wife, Stephanie.
Traumatised and angry for justice, Diamond eventually concedes that he cannot take part in the investigation.
But when he realises that his colleagues are spending more time checking his alibi than following up on his suggestions, he decides some unauthorised investigation is needed. Soon he is sifting through the dust of his entire career, unearthing startling and unexpected facts which bring him closer to the truth, and to avenging his beloved wife.
