The Summons Paperback / softback

Part of the Peter Diamond Mystery series


Winner of the Crime Writers Association Silver Dagger and shortlisted for the Edgar Award. The summons comes at night. Two policemen collect Peter Diamond from his West London flat and drive him to Bath.

Once head of the murder squad there, he is now out of touch in his retirement, unaware of an audacious escape from Albany Prison. Four years previously, Diamond headed the investigation of the bizarre murder of a Swedish woman journalist, her mouth stuffed with red roses.

Now the convicted murderer is at large and has already kidnapped the daughter of the Assistant Chief Constable.

He is demanding that the case be re-examined and he will deal only with Diamond.
