    I really enjoyed this story about Mountjoy and how Peter Diamond was able to solve the old case even though he thought he had solved it before This one had some really witty items and I was laughing at some of the things he came up with I really can t wait to find the next one and read it Just the way Peter strives to find clues makes you want to keep reading.I am giving this 4 out of 5 stars.

    Peter Diamond may not like computers and prefers good old shoe leather detecting to modern scientific forensics, but he does work well with women particularly his assistant detective Julie Harreaves in this story The two re investigate one of Diamond s old cases when the convicted felon breaks out of prison and asks for Diamond to prove him innocent I also like Diamond s relationship with his wife, Stephanie I ll readof these.
