The Last Detective is the first novel in the Peter Diamond mystery series. I saw it mentioned as a recommendation and picked it up from the library and I am so glad that I did. The character of Peter Diamond was engaging in his own way. I am not normally a fan of the “anti-technology” quirk but it works for him. He has an earnest manner about him and his lack of arrogance is quite endearing. I also liked the changing points of view as the book progressed. It was handled very well. I have read books in which changing points of view can be confusing or just a device that adds nothing to the plot, but that is not the case here.
I did know who the “villain” was prior the reveal but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book. I am definitely going to continue this series. Great mystery read!
