Praise

Praise for Bertie and the Crime of Passion

“Lovesey infuses his stories with tongue-in-cheek fun, wry humor, and gentle satire along with a sense of mystery and adventure . . . An intriguing mystery that’s both entertaining and adventurous.”
—Booklist

“Spirited . . . A lively evocation of fin-de-siecle Paris, a lightly ironic tone and some tidy plotting add up to another easy-to-take confection from this reliable British author.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Prince of Wales mysteries

“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
