The Summons (Peter Diamond Mystery Book 3) by Peter Lovesey
As a Bath resident I can vouch for the 100% accuracy of the geography of the City, every detail is correct but the main attraction is the plot andcharacter he has created. One is reminded of Dorethy Sayer's Peter Whimsy but in a different Century and class.

I bought this book to find out why the size of pages would suddenly change to postage stame size or bill poster size and how to stop it.
No luck. I then started at the begining of the book and tried to find which release of Windows 8 I had. 'Press WinKey and Break Key together ' was the Instruction. No indication where these keys were, found WinKey was the one with the windows logo on it via Ask Jeeves but never found where Break key was. Honestly this book is useless.DONT BUY IT.
