Praise for The Secret Hangman
*An Independent Mystery Booksellers Association Killer Book*
“When it comes to the classic British puzzle mystery . . . Peter Lovesey is your man. His latest, The Secret Hangman . . . is a special treat . . . Lovesey proves that the traditional puzzle mystery is always a bit of fun and games.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Lovesey’s delicate balance of humor and suspense [is] one of the delights of contemporary crime fiction.”
Wall Street Journal
“Lovesey continues to excel, with clever plotted mysteries filled with detailed behind-the-scenes police work.”
Library Journal, Starred Review
“Lovesey deftly blends suspense and humor in this excellent ninth whodunit to feature Peter Diamond . . . This classic series is still going strong.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“Lovesey, winner of many honors, including a Gold Dagger Award, should be on every British mystery lover’s short list, and this is a fine place to start.”
Rocky Mountain News
“Lovesey has cloaked the classic ‘puzzle’ mystery in a fully realized world of coppers and local landmarks . . . Masterful.”
Houston Chronicle
