Praise for A Case of the Spirits

Winner of the Prix du Roman d’Aventures

“One of the best of this series . . . Lively and well-plotted.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Peter Lovesey is undeniably one of the best practitioners of the genre . . . Elegantly written.”
Financial Times

“Splendid plot, prepossessing good humour, unassertively satisfying prose. Warmly recommended.”
The Sunday Times

“A neat puzzle whodunit with well-researched background of the Victorians’ séance craze, plus sauce of cheeky humour. Sheer entertainment.”
The Times

“Perfect period reconstruction.”
San Francisco Chronicle

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.”
