Reviews-
  • The New York Times Book Review "Lovesey takes his hero to emotional places he's never been before while constructing a plot of infernal ingenuity."
  • Associated Press "Diamond Dust is a gem. It has tension, emotion and a smorgasbord of red herrings."
  • Time Out "Christie level plotting."
  • Colin Dexter, CWA Diamond Dagger-winning author of the Inspector Morse series "Lovesey's writing is lucid and succinct, and he is a consummate story-teller."
  • Denver Post "Lovesey plots as well as he creates characters or turns an elegant phrase. Nothing is what it seems . . . He's so good it's hard to pin a label on him."
  • Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Lovesey will be hard-pressed to surpass this current effort for its combination of the puzzle and the personal, but based on his current achievement, it would be no great surprise if he did."
  • Kirkus Reviews "Fully dimensional characters, juicy plotting, and more twists than the Hampton Court maze."
  • January Magazine "Diamond Dust is a jewel of many intricate facets."
  • Reviewing the Evidence "This latest entry in the Peter Diamond series is among the best and in many ways, the most moving . . . an expertly plotted novel."
