Peter Lovesey, veteran of British detective crime-fiction, returns with his new novel The Stone Wife, the fourteenth exciting instalment of the Peter Diamond Mysteries.
A busy afternoon in Bath ends in bloodshed as three armed men hold up an auction in an attempt to steal Lot 29, a medieval carving of the Wife of Bath. Diamond, head of the Bath Criminal Investigation Department, lands the case and soon finds himself sharing an office with the artifact. Unfortunately for Diamond and his team, the Wife seems to bring nothing but bad luck.
The Stone Wife, an intricate and carefully controlled novel, proves that Lovesey is still on top form and deserves his status as one of the UK’s best crime writers. Join us in welcoming him back to Bath, the setting of so many of his great novels.
