Praise for Bertie and the Seven Bodies

“A genial Victorian mystery series . . . Mr. Lovesey must have been laughing up his sleeve when he lifted this Ten Little Indians plot from Agatha Christie and handed it to Bertie to make a royal botch of. That we can recognize the mechanics of the story and still enjoy the telling says much of the author’s skill at weaving amusing characters and choice scandals into his narrative.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“This is a delightful and amusing period piece, particularly in the interplay between the libidinous Bertie and his rather more intelligent wife, Alexandra, who stoically endures his inclination to dally with anything in skirts.”
Sunday Express
 
“High-class Victorian entertainment written with wit.”
The Times
 
“Seamlessly plotted, populated with a dynamic cast, and often howlingly funny.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“Half the fun of this romp lies in watching Bertie invent, then discard, one theory after another; for a while his suspicions even fall on the widowed hostess he wants to bed. The other half comes from Lovesey’s light mockery of Victorian manners and sexual mores in a bright, entertaining tale whose bantering tone conceals artful plotting.”
