Praise for The Last Detective


“The first volume in Lovesey’s beloved Peter Diamond series has a handsome new 20th-anniversary edition.”
Entertainment Weekly

“A bravura performance . . . slyly paced, marbled with surprise and in the end, strangely affecting.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Thickly textured, amusing, unpredictably mixing puzzle and procedural . . . One of the best.”
Los Angeles Times

“A treasure.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Not only a good story but a compelling one.”
Boston Globe

“Top-form Lovesey.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Witty . . . One surprise after another.”
—Publishers Weekly


Praise for The Peter Diamond series

“I’m jealous of everyone discovering Lovesey and Diamond for the first time—you have a wonderful backlist to catch up on. Me, all I can do is wait for the next book.”
—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

“Next to Jane Austen, Peter Lovesey is the writer the tourist board of Bath, England, extols most proudly . . . The enduring draw of the Peter Diamond books derives both from the beguiling Bath cityscape and the brusque character of Diamond himself.”
—NPR
