From the PublisherPraise for The House Sitter
"Peter Lovesey loves strong women, cerebral killers and diabolical puzzles—the very ingredients that make The House Sitter one of the most cunning mysteries in his Inspector Diamond series."
—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Splendid . . . [an] elegant and suspenseful puzzle.”
—Los Angeles Times
“An extraordinary mystery.”
“Compelling . . . a tour de force.”
“Lovesey demonstrates . . . how richly he deserves the British Crime Writers Association’s Lifetime Achievement award . . . Lovesey is a master of intricate plotting. A Paiute water basket is not more tightly constructed than this extraordinary story nor more exquisite. The identity of the killer, when finally revealed, is genuinely startling.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“An ingenious and complex novel, this is Lovesey at the top of his form.”
—Booklist, Starred Review
“This deliciously intricate puzzle makes for very pleasurable reading. The plotting is airtight, and there are any number of arresting and interesting characters.”
“True wit is the hallmark of the classic British mystery, and Peter Lovesey delivers it, and a lot more, in The House Sitter . . . A literate and delightful mystery."
