Praise for Another One Goes Tonight

Another One Goes Tonight [is an] impeccably constructed mystery featuring the unpredictable but ever-entertaining Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond…there are plenty of red herrings to sniff out and misdirections to blindly follow. A classic whodunit.” 
—The New York Times Book Review

“Lovesey is a master of the intricately plotted murder mystery… Easily one of the best and most entertaining mysteries I’ve read in a long time.”
—Mystery Scene

“The characters are colorful and engaging; the dialogue is witty; and Lovesey’s prose carries readers effortlessly along a fairly lengthy book. Plus, his puzzle-making skills are top-notch. Matching wits with Diamond makes for a pleasant night’s entertainment. But you’re unlikely to solve the mystery before he does. Lovesey is a master of the genre.”
—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Delightful…the brilliance of the slightly cantankerous and overweight detective superintendent still shines strong. Bringing the beautiful city of Bath and the political problems plaguing modern police departments vividly to life, Another One Goes Tonight is an irresistible entry in the Diamond series.”
—Shelf Awareness

“[Another One Goes Tonight] is engaging form the very first scene. Lovesey’s storytelling is darkly funny, with richly drawn characters, detailed police procedure, brilliant dialogue, and impeccable plotting.” 
—Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine 

“Pacing, dialogue, exposition, backstory—nobody handles them better than Lovesey, who always writes elegantly while spinning a tough-minded police procedural.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“Lovesey’s superior 16th whodunit featuring Det. Supt. Peter Diamond offers fair play fans a delightfully clever puzzle that toys with their expectations. Lovesey taunts readers with extracts from what appears to be a serial killer’s diary while building up to an ingenious final reveal that highlights his gift for misdirection.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Another absorbing, resourceful English procedural from one of the best.” 
—Kirkus Reviews

“Lovesey delivers a page-turner complete with a likable protagonist whose encounters with authority bring humor to a whodunit with an amazing conclusion.”
—Library Journal 

“Lovesey lays out a classic British mystery here, full of lively twists. Put this one on the summer reading list for pure enjoyment.” 
—Kingdom Books

“Peter Lovesey is one of the brightest lights in police procedural novels and this one, his 16th in his Peter Diamond series, is one of his best.”
—Acadiana Lifestyle Magazine 

Praise for the Peter Diamond Investigations

“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

“Peter Diamond is impatient, belligerent, cunning, insightful, foul, laugh-out-loud funny . . . A superb series.”
—Louise Penny

“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

“Extremely stylish, lighter than air . . . utterly surprising.”

“Lovesey’s books are so beautifully constructed and cleanly written that they could be used as textbooks in a crime writing course.”
Chicago Tribune

“[Lovesey is] a nimble standard-bearer for the whodunit tradition that goes back to the Golden Age of detective fiction . . . A cunning logic puzzle, a devilishly inspired bit of story crafting.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch
