Review:

Praise for On the Edge

“[A] vivid postwar environment that confers plausibility, ingenious plot twists that heighten the suspense and two stunning character studies that confound our facile presumptions about women who kill.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Lovesey is one of the very best of the current generation of crime writers and he controls his plot like clockwork—everything timed to precision so that the final uncertainty is resolved just as the bell tolls.”
London Evening Standard

“Brilliant is the only word for veteran Peter Lovesey’s latest venture into the macabre . . . A whip-crack pace, gasps all the way, and yet another winner for Lovesey.”
Scotland on Sunday

“Never has Lovesey’s wizardry been so effective as in this tale of the duped and the duper . . . The story dodges from one unguessable outcome to the next.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Peter Diamond series


“I’m jealous of everyone discovering Lovesey and Diamond for the first time—you have a wonderful backlist to catch up on. Me, all I can do is wait for the next book.”
Sara Paretsky

"These erudite and wondrously witty books are unlike any police procedural you've ever read."
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Thickly textured, amusing, unpredictably mixing puzzle and procedural . . . One of the best.”
Los Angeles Times
 
“Witty . . . A perfectly realized murder mystery.”
The Wall Street Journal
 
“Extremely stylish, lighter than air . . . Utterly surprising.”
Newsweek
