Superintendent Peter Diamond believes there's a link between two disappearances: a recent one involving an English Civil War reenactor and that of an Eastern European prostitute years ago. Simon Prebble gives a gruff voice to the detective as he makes his way through the case, seeming to plod but actually having a sharp eye and a keen brain. Prebble gives this procedural an air of routine that still manages to draw listeners in. His voice works well at blending the story’s intense moments, such as the shooting of a colleague, into the quieter aspects of English life. The aging detective's adventures engage listeners whether he's dealing with a mystery or a police physical. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2010]
