Peter Lovesey, THE STONE WIFE
Peter Lovesey is an English mystery writer who had written more than thirty mysteries in his long career and received numerous rewards. A number of his books have been in the Peter Diamond series as is this one. Lovesey has the rare ability to develop complex characters while at the same time delivering a spirited and satisfying plot.
In THE STONE WIFE, when the highest bidder for a stone statue of Chaucer’s Wife of Bath is murdered in the middle of the auction, Diamond’s team must discover why this apparently harmless scholar was killed. Thus begins a plot filled with personal and professional motives that will keep the reader guessing until the end. Lovesey does it again.
On a different note, since we’re in the doldrums of winter, I thought it would be a good time for me to give away copies of my most humorous book. So the first fifteen people who go to the Contact page on this website and leave their name and address will receive a signed, hard covered copy of BREAKING THE RULES. Don’t miss your chance, do it now!
