Peter Lovesey is the author of twenty-one celebrated mystery novels and the recipient of the 2000 CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger in recognition of lifetime achievement. He lives near Chichester, England.

"Lovesey's books should be force-fed to fledgling crime writers who believe plotting is unimportant." (Booklist)

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Theo Sinclair was nine years old, in 1943, he fell in love with a girl of 20 named Barbara Lockwood, who killed herself. Now it's 1964, and Theo is teaching undergraduate history courses at the University of Reading, England. He's only 29, but already a confirmed bachelor and curmudgeon. Theo's humdrum life is shattered by the appearance of Alice Ashenfelter, a beautiful young American whose father was hanged for the murder provoked by Barbara's suicide. Alice is determined to prove that justice miscarried, and finds ways to engage Theo in her cause. Suddenly, as the pair investigate the old mystery, there's a new murder, then a third. Lovesey deftly builds suspense as the plot unfolds, and his slam-bang finish is altogether satisfying. Quirky and entertaining characters give added depth to this corker of a novel. Mystery Guild selection. May
