In the sixteenth entry of Peter Lovesey's timeless British detective series, Peter Diamond wrestles with his own moral compass, struggling to protect police prestige while debating what it means to do right by a serial killer. 

En route to investigate a late-night disturbance, a patrol car spins off the road, killing one of the cops and leaving the other in critical condition. Detective Peter Diamond is assigned to look into the case. His supervisor is desperately hoping Diamond will not discover the officers were at fault. Instead, he discovers something even worse--a civilian on a motorized tricycle was involved in the crash and has been lying on the side of the road for hours. Diamond administers CPR, but the man's fate is unclear. Soon, though, Diamond becomes suspicious of the civilian victim and begins a private inquiry that leads to a trail of uninvestigated deaths. As the man lingers on life support, Diamond wrestles with the fact that he may have saved the life of a serial killer.

What a convoluted plot. The story seems quite simple; then it doesn't; then it double crosses you again. Old men fall asleep like cord wood never to waken again. The prime suspect becomes the prime victim and vice versa. One of the characters mentions the term "misdirection" --- the conjurer's trick. And for sure there's a ,lot of this in "Another One..." and that's what is so conflicting in this novel. That's what will keep you hooked.
Murder mystery fans: you can't afford to miss this one.
But "Who is Hornby"?

Intriguing at first, but goes on much too long.

Good characters, good plotting, plausible ..... not a bad read.

Too slow and plodding.

Lovesey makes a character drama out of village caper and meticulous procedural as Detective Diamond re-traces the steps of a railway enthusiast whose life he saved. Keeps amateur and advanced sleuth readers guessing.
