Product description


With his ear for authentic dialogue laced with black humour, Peter Lovesey opens a tale that is at once improbable but totally convincing. It takes a five-star crime writer to pull off that trick ― Daily Mail

'You're on your own in this game,' Peter Lovesey gives fair warning in Another One Goes Tonight, his latest impeccably constructed mystery featuring the unpredictable but ever-entertaining Detective Peter Diamond of the Bath Constabulary . . . For all the witty jabs taken at English eccentricities, this is a classic whodunit ― New York Times Book Review

Edgar-finalist Lovesey's superior 16th whodunit featuring Det.Supt. Peter Diamond offers fair play fans a delightfully clever puzzle that toys with their expectations . . . Lovesey taunts readers with extracts from what appears to be a serial killer's diary while building up to an ingenious final reveal that highlights his gift for misdirection ― Publishers Weekly

Lovesey's fans will be overjoyed to watch his series hero, Diamond - smart, obstinate, slyly funny - back in action . . . Pacing, dialogue, exposition, backstory - nobody handles them better than Lovesey, who always writes elegantly while spinning a tough-minded police procedural - ― Booklist

Another absorbing, resourceful English procedural from one of the best ― Kirkus Reviews

A series of surprises leads up to a skilful and unexpected solution. Another triumph for the old master ― Literary Review

If you're looking for a perfect summer holiday read, pick up Another One Goes Tonight by Peter Lovesey . . . Marvellous misdirection crowns a cunning story, told with gentle humour ― Morning Star

The twists and turns; the multiple plotting that leads Diamond in the end to the right answer is never bullying or inhumane; and it is Lovesey's humanity which makes him the popular - and admired - author he has been for decades ― CrimeTime

Peter Lovesey, where have you been all my life? I just met you in book 16 of your series starring the curmudgeonly Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond . . . My bookshelves sag with British authors' series, so how the heck did I miss Peter Lovesey? No more, my friends, no more. What can be more delightful than finding a witty and erudite author with a huge backlist to devour like chocolate ganache bon bons? ― Bookreporter.com

The story is engaging from the very first scene. Lovesey's storytelling is darkly funny, with richly drawn characters, detailed police procedure, brilliant dialogue and impeccable plotting ― Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine


In his lengthy career, veteran novelist Peter Lovesey has supplied the most diverting (and elegantly written) crime fiction - Good Book Guide

Diamond is a wonderfully rounded character whose lines are witty and whose observations about people's characters and motives are brilliantly insightful. Vintage Diamond mystery, spiced by his comic encounters with his supervisor: a must for devotees of character-driven British crime fiction - Booklist

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 - New York Times
