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."
"Peter Lovesey triumphs again."
--The Washington Post
"As good a crime entertainment as you could wish for."
"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."
Praise for Peter Lovesey
"I have long loved Peter Lovesey's books . . . A creative, courageous and gifted writer."
"Lovesey is a master of the crime novel."
"What'll it be today? A knotty puzzle mystery? A fast-paced police procedural? Something more high-toned, with a bit of wit? With the British author Peter Lovesey, there's no need to make those agonizing decisions, because his books have it all."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Mr. Lovesey's narrative is swift, but he takes time out for local color and abundant humor, the latter springing from the book's quirky characters . . . Lovesey is a wizard at mixing character-driven comedy with realistic-to-grim suspense. And in a writing career spanning four decades, he has created a stylish and varied body of work."
--The Wall Street Journal
"A treat . . . Lovesey's restraint, wit, and charming cast ensure him a place in the winner's circle."
"Extremely stylish, lighter than air . . . utterly surprising."
