The Summons by Peter Lovesey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Diamond is brought back to Bath to appease an escaped convict who is holding a hostage claiming his innocence.
Diamond solves it all, with the help of a softspoken female detective with an wonderfully dry undercurrent of sassy.
Jane Austen shows up again, too.
And he finally has the sense to get his CID job back, which, I hope, will make for more classically constructed sequels.
Which, of course, I'm going to read. Right now.
