Pacing. The eleventh Peter Lovesey crime novel to feature Chief Superintendent Peter Diamond is titled Cop to Corpse. The action opens with the killing of a policeman, the third in the Bath area in past few months. With a moderate pace that never got my heart racing, Diamond slowly follows leads and interviews individuals who might help him solve the crime. While I had guessed the murderer early on, I was still entertained when Diamond solved the puzzle. Fans of detective novels with strong protagonists are those most likely to enjoy this one.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
