Praise for Rough Cider


Nominated for the Edgar Award for Best Mystery Novel

“Bracing psychological suspense.”
The New York Times Book Review

“This is a Russian doll of a book, one secret concealed inside another, one fact leading to another, just the way a whodunit ought to be, but so often is not. It is neatly constructed and written in a quick-fire prose style, which adds considerably to its appeal.”
Financial Times

“[Lovesey] excels at his craft and keeps coming up with books that entertain and puzzle.”
The Sunday Telegraph

“I enjoyed Rough Cider very much indeed, read it at a sitting . . . Original the novel certainly is, leaving the reader dry-mouthed. But with no desire for cider as a thirst-quencher.”
—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
