Praise for Diamond and the Eye

“Mr. Lovesey excels at mixing character-driven humor with legitimate suspense.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Longtime PI buffs will take a shine to the dodgy Getz’s wannabe ambitions, and procedural buffs should enjoy how Diamond and company work the case. It’s the mutual aggravation society of the two mismatched sleuths, however, that really has me itching for a rematch.”
—Kevin Burton Smith, Mystery Scene Magazine

“Lovesey writes [a] feel-good crime yet he never lets the comedy vitiate the mystery.”
The Times Saturday Review

“Glory be! British crime novelist Lovesey is back, bringing along his beloved series hero, the grumpy, darkly funny, and—beneath it all—strictly business Peter Diamond, detective inspector with the Bath constabulary. It’s all here: mystery, sparky writing, and a cast of characters who come alive on the page, moving through a tricky plot that we know is playing us for suckers.”
—Booklist, Starred Review

“The action builds to a Poirot-like solution.”
­Publishers Weekly

“Move over, Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond. The Avon and Somerset CID is about to be joined, jostled, and decentered by two other parties interested in an otherwise ordinary burglary.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Peter Diamond Investigations

“Lovesey is careful to remind us that Bath holds hidden secrets behind its gracious Georgian architecture . . . Light and dark imagery is a fixture of Lovesey’s Bath novels, in which life is lived on many levels, some in full sunshine and others buried in shadow.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Mr. Lovesey, a veteran master of mayhem and misdirection, laces ominous suspense with wit.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Lovesey is the real deal.”
—Seattle Times

“[Lovesey] has created a brisk, colorful page-turner centered on murder and mayhem at the springtime half-marathon in the city of Bath.”
—The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“A particularly crafty resolution of the enigmatic mystery shows that this long-running series still has plenty of life.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
