"Two police officers are about to head home after a long night shift when they receive one last call: a suspicious nude person has been spotted in the wee hours of the morning. En route to the call, the patrol car spins off the road, killing one of the exhausted cops instantly and leaving the other in critical condition. Whenever a police car is involved in an accident, the matter must be taken very seriously. Inspector Peter Diamond is assigned to look into the case. His supervisor is desperately hoping Diamond will not discover that the car was speeding or that the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol--that would make the police look very bad indeed. Instead, Diamond 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 by the accident for hours undiscovered. Diamond administers CPR, but no one can say whether the man will pull through. If a civilian has been killed by a police vehicle, the department has very big problems on its hands. Meanwhile, Diamond has become suspicious of the civilian victim, and begins a private inquiry. Why was he out in the middle of the night, carrying a funeral urn of ashes? Diamond's somewhat illegal and highly secret break-in into the man's house only exposes increasingly awful information, and leads Diamond to a trail of uninvestigated deaths. As the man lingers on life support, Diamond must wrestle with the fact that he may have saved the life of a serial killer"--

Interesting plot line but repetitive writing and shallow characters. A comfortable but not memorable read.

For much of this book, the prime suspect is in a coma. There is no action, no tension and no confrontation. Consequently, this book reads like a cozy rather than a puzzler. I would rate "Another One Goes Tonight" at 3.50 stars.

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.

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.
