Excellent as usual.

True to form, Lovesey has assembled another compelling narrative. This is another of his Peter Diamond series and Diamond is engaging to say the least. This novel takes horse;, Ukrainian "refugees" of dubious mien; an errant simpleton; English countryside; a battle over three hundred years old and a headless skeleton and cooks them all up together to serve up a tasty stew.
It just begs to be wolfed down, er, read.

The Peter Diamond series is terrific and this is a great addition to it. I think this series deserves more attention than it gets as it is right up there with a lot of the great British detective series.
