    I’ve read every book by Lovesey, put out under that name at least (and not counting short story collections), except for the last two books in the Bertie series. Well, there are a few others – at some point a ton of nonfiction sports books suddenly appeared on his profile here at GoodReads...

    Superintendent Peter Diamond's boss, the Assistant Chief Constable, wonders at one point whether her chief detective draws weird crimes to her jurisdiction (Bath and its surrounding counties). Whatever the truth of it, the latest crime, a real murder, has unusual aspects. It also ties into Bath's ra...
