The House Sitter The identification of the woman found murdered on Whiteview Sands poses more questions than it answers. Emma Tysoe was a respected psychologist and an official criminal profiler with several successful cases to her credit.

Without any clue as to the woman's identity, Diamond certainly has a puzzle to satisfy his quirky talents. About The Author: Peter Lovesey was born in Whitton, Middlesex in 1936.
