The Complete Prince of Wales Mysteries collects all three of Peter Lovesey’s charming and thrilling Bertie adventures in a single volume for the first time.

Albert Edward, Prince of Wales—Bertie, as he’s known—is the eldest son of Queen Victoria, and future King Edward VII. Bertie is a pleasure seeker, always searching out the best meals, the most beautiful women, and the most lavish parties.

As Prince Regent, Bertie is expected to behave like a proper royal and avoid scandal. Instead, his love of excitement leads him to a decidedly unprincely hobby: sleuthing. Bertie is not the best detective, but that does not stop him from trying to solve every case that crosses his path, including the feverish suicide of the greatest jockey of the century, the mysterious death of a member of the royal hunting party, and the murder of the son-in-law of an old friend.

Includes:

Bertie and the Tin Man
Bertie and the Seven Bodies
Bertie and and the Crime of Passion

Media

“Delightfully humorous . . . No one is more fun than Bertie.”
—Associated Press
“An utterly charming series . . . What a delight!”
—The New York Times
“Lovesey proved himself the world’s foremost concocter of latter-day Victoriana in his series of mysteries built around Sergeant Cribb . . . The rueful, candid voice he gives to the fleshy prince rings true, the details of the horse-racing and music-hall worlds are vivid, and much of the tale is sweetly funny.”
—Time
“An engaging conundrum in the tradition of Agatha Christie.”
—Philadelphia Inquirer
“Seamlessly plotted, populated with a dynamic cast, and often howlingly funny.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Detection both scrupulous and surprising . . . A substantial whodunnit; truly original, most entertaining.”
—The Literary Review
“Thank heavens for Peter Lovesey, who has produced another accomplished novel.”
—London Evening Standard
“A hugely entertaining racing thriller . . . with a mixture of royal cunning and Flashman-style caddishness. It's Dick Francis by gaslight.”
—Daily Express
