Peter Lovesey Honored with Strand Lifetime Achievement Award in Advance of His Latest Novel, THE STONE WIFE
Peter Lovesey Honored with Strand Lifetime Achievement Award in advance of the latest novel in his masterful Peter Diamond series.
With THE STONE WIFE, Peter Lovesey brings yet another page-turning mystery to the Chief Superintendent Peter Diamond Investigation series. After an auction turns deadly, Peter Diamond and his team are assigned to investigate the object that inspired the bloody confrontation: a very old slab of stone carved to be the Wife of Bath from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The suspects range from pop stars to Chaucer fantatics to historical gun collectors, and to make it all worse, Diamond is pretty sure the Stone Wife has laid a curse on his office.
This award winning series, the most critically acclaimed in the Soho Crime catalog, has claimed an Anthony Award, a Barry award, a Macavity Award, and a Gold Dagger award and shows no signs of stopping.
