Killing with Confetti

Killing with Confetti

The eighteenth book in the award-winning Peter Diamond series, from Peter Lovesey.

As a New Year begins in Bath, Ben Brace proposes to his long-term girlfriend, Caroline. The problem is that she’s the daughter of notorious crime baron, Joe Irving, who is coming to the end of a prison sentence. And Ben’s father George is Bath’s Deputy Chief Constable. But mothers and sons are a formidable force: a wedding in the Abbey and reception in the Roman Baths are set in place before the career-obsessed DCC can step in.

Peter Diamond, Bath’s head of CID, is appalled to be put in charge of security on the day. Ordered to be discreet, he packs a gun and a guest list in his best suit and must somehow cope with potential killers, gang rivals, warring parents, bossy photographers and straying bridesmaids. The laid-back Joe Irving seems oblivious to the danger he is in from rival gang-leaders, while Brace can’t wait for the day to end.

Will the photo-session be a literal shoot? Will Joe Irving’s speech as father of the bride be his last words? Can Diamond pull off a miracle, avert a tragedy and send the happy couple on their honeymoon?

Bath detective Peter Diamond finds himself at a prestigious wedding that ends in murder…

Lovesey spins a tricksy plot with dark humour and red herrings galore
Peterborough Evening Telegraph
Mr Lovesey has been writing his Peter Diamond series for nearly three decades, and it's a pleasure to note no discernible flagging of energy in author or detective
