Peter Lovesey (Author), Simon Prebble (Narrator). Book 10 of 14 in the Peter Diamond Series.

This book is part of a series centred on the career of the detective, Peter Diamond, by now Head of Bath CID. You don't need to have read any of the previous books to enjoy this one, but knowing something about Diamond's earlier life does flesh out his character a bit more.
Lovesey's no-nonsense detective, Superintendent Peter Diamond, who heads the local Manvers Street nick (the station at which PC Tasker was based) takes over the investigation, only to ind himself fighting a turf war over jurisdiction with Superintendent Jack Gull from the Regional Serial Crimes Unit.
