Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Peter Lovesey is the real deal. A top master of the police procedural British subgenre, he’s an ace at spinning out teasingly slow plot revelations…crisp prose and humane characterizations.” Seattle Times
“His voice works well at blending the story’s intense moments, such as the shooting of a colleague, into the quieter aspects of English life.” AudioFile
“Thanks to Lovesey’s nonpareil deftness, however, Diamond ultimately prevails over murder past and present. History, humor, inspired clues, maniacal twists, and a paean to the beauty of the Bath countryside. Lovesey, who’s won every prize going, deserves another for Diamond’s tenth.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[Lovesey] has no peer in presenting a traditional mystery with all the clues hiding in plain sight.” Publishers Weekly (starred review), praise for the series
