Praise for the Sergeant Cribb Series:

“Delightful Victorian mysteries. . . . [A] fine picture of vice, good mystery plotting, and fun.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Lively and well-plotted.”—The New York Times

Beautiful Miriam Cromer seems confident that she will be acquitted of the murder of her husband’s assistant despite her confession. She blames her husband although he has an alibi. It’s up to Cribb and Thackeray to discover what really happened.

Peter Lovesey is the author of over twenty-five novels. He has received many CWA Awards and the Malice Domestic Award for Lifetime Achievement. He lives in Chichester, England.

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

Praise for Peter Lovesey

"I have long loved Peter Lovesey's books . . . A creative, courageous and gifted writer." --Louise Penny

"Lovesey is a master of the crime novel." --Sara Paretsky

"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." --Entertainment Weekly

"Extremely stylish, lighter than air . . . utterly surprising." --Newsweek
