A Mystery Tribune Best Book of February
A CWA Gold and Silver Dagger Award-Winning Author
Peter Lovesey has assembled this devilishly clever collection, 18 yarns of mystery, melancholy, and mischief, inhabiting such deadly settings as a theater, a monastery, and the book publishing industry. The collection includes that first story that launched his story-writing career as well as three exclusive new stories. In addition, Lovesey fans will delight in a personal essay by the author about the historical inspirations - and in an appearance by the irascible Bath detective Peter Diamond, who's, in the author's words, "bulldozed his way" into this volume.
