Review

Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement Recipient
Mystery Writers of America 2018 Grandmaster

Praise for The Circle

"A treat . . . Lovesey's restraint, wit, and charming cast ensure him a place in the winner's circle."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Wonderfully funny . . . [A] jaunty jape of a mystery."
--Washington Post Book World

"Splendid entertainment . . . How [Lovesey] blends suspense and humor to the detriment of neither remains one of crime fiction's greatest puzzles. This one need not be solved to be enjoyed."
--The Wall Street Journal

"What a joy . . . Its snappy dialogue made me laugh out loud; it delighted me with quotations heading each chapter and with its literary references; it provided a puzzle I was unable to solve. In short, the novel is great fun."
--The Roanoke Times

"A crafty fair-play puzzle."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"[Lovesey is] a master storyteller . . . who can out-Christie Dame Agatha when he sets his mind to it, offers a smorgasbord of red herrings, a nifty plot twist, charming bits of doggerel and delicious digs at writers of the unpublishable."
--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Praise for Peter Lovesey

"I have long loved Peter Lovesey's books . . . A creative, courageous and gifted writer."
--Louise Penny

"Lovesey is a master of the crime novel."
--Sara Paretsky

"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."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Mr. Lovesey's narrative is swift, but he takes time out for local color and abundant humor, the latter springing from the book's quirky characters . . . Lovesey is a wizard at mixing character-driven comedy with realistic-to-grim suspense. And in a writing career spanning four decades, he has created a stylish and varied body of work."
--The Wall Street Journal

"A treat . . . Lovesey's restraint, wit, and charming cast ensure him a place in the winner's circle."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Extremely stylish, lighter than air . . . utterly surprising."
--Newsweek
