Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Waxwork

*Winner of the CWA Silver Dagger for Best Crime Novel*

“At once charming, chilling and convincing as if it had unfolded in the Police Intelligence column of April, 1888.”
TIME

“Peter Lovesey triumphs again.”
Sunday Express

“Marvelously authentic.”
The Washington Post

“As good a crime entertainment as you could wish for.”
The Times

“I couldn’t put it down. I read it at a sitting—or rather, a lying, for I was in the garden at the time and got so absorbed I didn’t notice the sun had burnt the skin off my back! Waxwork is quite the best novel of detection I have read for a long time.”
Ruth Rendell
