“Peter Lovesey tosses off a real brain-banger in Bloodhounds, the fourth book in a challenging series . . . I am mad for these pyrotechnic teasers, and this one had my head spinning.”The New York Times Book Review

A rare stamp and a corpse are discovered in Bath within hours of each other. As he investigates, Inspector Peter Diamond discovers that both the person who found the stamp and the victim belong to the Bloodhounds, an elite group of mystery lovers, who now urge Diamond to bring the murderer to justice. But there’s a hitch: the body lies inside a padlocked houseboat and the only key is in the pocket of a man with an airtight alibi.

Review:

Peter Diamond of the Bath Police returns in the fourth installment in this marvelous detective series. The plot for this mystery is well thought-out and cleverly developed with puzzling turns that keep you guessing. A rare stamp is stolen from a museum, only to appear between the pages of a mystery book under consideration by a group of wing-chair sleuths known as the Bloodhounds. The intrigue deepens when one of the mystery buffs winds up dead. The cat-and-mouse game plays out with plenty of twists and turns. Mystery lovers will enjoy the debates over classic mystery plots that the Bloodhounds engage in, and the careful reader will wisely follow them to glean clues to solving the mystery.
