Bath Murder Mysteries.
Who is Peter Diamond?
Coming from Peter Lovesey, a British writer of historical and contemporary detective novels, The Peter Diamond Mysteries is about a modern-day police detective in Bath, Somerset.
As described on the Peguin Random House page, Peter Diamond series is a golden age-style detective, a devotee of old-fashioned gumshooing. He’s a little out of shape and has no interest in fancy technology—he’s only just been pursuaded to get a cell phone and has no patience for computer nonsense—but none of this stops him from solving case after case.
