Peach has been away from the CID for a year, during which solve rates have decreased and the department has faltered under the mismanagement of Peach's boss and nemesis, Superintendent Tommy "Bloody" Tucker. Peach is assigned to the high-profile case of prostitute Sarah Dunne, who's been brutally strangled. Tucker, one of those awful bosses who loves taking all the credit when his subordinates perform well, warns Peach that he'd better solve the case in double-quick time.
Peach, whose great delight in life is to insult the pompous Tucker without Tucker quite catching on, continues his campaign to undercut his loathsome boss. But Peach is also a gifted detective who's dedicated to his job, and he's determined to find Sarah Dunne's killer, even with Tucker's bungling attempts to control the case.

A young, inexperienced prostitute is found dead on a piece of waste ground and DI Peach and DS Blake have their work cut out to solve the case. There are plenty is suspects all of whom seem to have means motive and opportunity and the reader will be kept guessing as to who actually did it.
I really liked the way the reader is given a glimpse of each suspect in turn and as you read about each one you're left thinking - that has to be the one. It is very cleverly written. I have read se A young, inexperienced prostitute is found dead on a piece of waste ground and DI Peach and DS Blake have their work cut out to solve the case.
I have read several books in this entertaining series now and I think of all the ones I've read this has to be the best so far. Cleverly plotted, carefully researched and with interesting and believable characters. The prostitutes in the story are portrayed with sympathy and an understanding of why some women believe that this is the only way they can earn the money they need to survive.
I can thoroughly recommend both this book and this series. If you like your crime novels with little graphic violence and bad language - though there is the odd four letter word - then you may enjoy this series. As I say this is the best one I've read so far. The series doesn't have to be read in any order. Good solid read.
Not the best Percy Peach novel, but a reasonable addition to the canon. Was rather dissatisfied with the murder as the solution seemed to come out of the left field with no discernible clues. Worth reading though. Helen Howerton rated it it was amazing Jul 04, Suzanne rated it liked it May 26,
