“A perfect blend of psychology and technique.”
—Boston Review
“In a witty takeoff on the always titillating ‘locked room’ mystery, Lovesey’s wise but beleaguered hero Peter Diamond confronts a homicide case as perplexing as any he’s faced.”
—Booklist
“Peter Lovesey loves strong women, cerebral killers and diabolical puzzles—the very ingredients that make The House Sitter one of the most cunning mysteries in his Inspector Diamond series.”
—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“True wit is the hallmark of the classic British mystery, and Peter Lovesey delivers it, and a lot more in The House Sitter. . . . A literate and delightful mystery.”
