Jo Stevens’s evening with Rick isn’t going too well, so when she spots her friend Gemma a few lanes down at the bowling alley, she seizes the opportunity for a double date. When Gemma says she’d like to kill her sleazy boss, the two couples joke about forming a club to execute perfect murders. But when Jo stumbles upon a corpse of a woman the next morning, she realizes that murder is no laughing matter. Jo describes her gruesome discovery to Inspector Henrietta “Hen” Mallin who has her work cut out for her as the bodies count continues to climb.

About the Author:

Peter Lovesey is the author of more than thirty highly praised mystery novels. He has been awarded the CWA Gold and Silver Daggers, the Cartier Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement, the Strand Magazine Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Macavity, Barry, and Anthony Awards, and many other honors. He lives in West Sussex, England.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Lovesey's second novel starring Chichester CID inspector Henrietta "Hen" Mallin (after 2005's The Circle) provides further proof that the CWA Diamond Dagger winner has no peer in presenting a traditional mystery, with all the clues hiding in plain sight. When a half-naked female body washes up on a beach, Mallin and her team must identify the woman as well as determine whether she met her end through foul play. Before the corpse can be named, Jo Stevens, who found the body tangled in seaweed, comes across another one in remarkably similar circumstances. Fearing that she'll fall under Mallin's intense scrutiny, Stevens fails to report this second death. Between the alternating perspectives of Mallin and Stevens, the suspense builds, enhanced by credible characters and healthy doses of black humor. The police eventually connect the two cases and focus on Stevens's new beau, a laconic ex-con who had a past with both victims, but the solution is, of course, not so straightforward. Inspector Mallin deserves as long a fictional career as Lovesey's other current series sleuth, Peter Diamond. (Apr.)
