Praise for Wobble to Death

Winner of the Macmillan/Panther First Crime Novel Prize
One of Mystery Writers of America’s Best 100 Mystery Novels of All Time

“A fine case of murder, projected against a compelling historical background.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Don’t miss this.”
—Los Angeles Times

“Lovesey, an expert in Victorian sports arcana, guides the plot with a deft touch and plenty of period atmosphere. Readers who have not yet made his acquaintance will find him a delightful companion.”
—Historical Novels Review 

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.”
