The beloved Sergeant Cribb series by Peter Lovesey

It’s 1882 and Albert Moscrop, who is spending his holiday in Brighton observing human nature through a telescope, gradually moves into the circle of the Prothero family, who he has been fascinated by – especially the beautiful Zena Prothero, whose husband appears to take her for granted.

But through this connection, he becomes involved in a sensational murder. All of Brighton is horrified by the gruesome crime, and the local police seek the help of Scotland Yard’s Sergeant Cribb and Constable Thackeray, who soon find themselves challenged by the strangest case of their careers, one as mystifying as it is macabre.

Reviews

His best yet
The Times
A minor gem, catching to perfection the social atmospherics of Victorian Brighton and at the same time telling an ingenious story of murder and discovery
Publishers Weekly
Positively, this is the best Lovesey to date
Oxford Mail
The sleuthing is neat and satisfying: in the meantime, Victorian pleasures, permitted and illicit, are rendered up with gusto
Guardian
This is easily the best story Mr Lovesey has written
Birmingham Post
