1 Lovesey, Peter Bertie and the Seven Bodies
New York Mysterious Press 1990 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 

Ex-library with usual stamps. DJ in protective cover taped to spine. DJ has 1/2" tear on top edge. A bright attractive copy.

"Albert Edward, Prince of Wales—bon viveur, playboy, sportsman, "Bertie" to his uppercrust pals—who made his detective debut in Bertie and the Tinman—is off and running with a new and baffling adventure. The prince is pleased to accept the invitation of Lady Amelia Drummond to an October shooting party at her country home. Desborough Hall is one of the great houses of England, the guest list is to his liking—and Lady Amelia herself is a fun-loving young widow. The shooting is a great success, but tragedy strikes at the first dinner party. One of the guests, Queenie Chimes (an actress at the Lyceum), pitches forward and collapses face-first in the bombe. Found tucked into her place setting is a piece of newspaper bearing the single word "Monday." A succession of murderous incidents, all with accompanying notes, leads Bertie to deduce that the killer is following the plan of the old nursery thyme "Monday’s Child." The targets are clear and the methods are brilliant—but the motive is baffling. Once again the princely sleuth—who is often frustrated by his lack of opportunity to engage in detection—plunges into a dangerous and potentially sensitive case. Peter Lovesey takes his readers on a charming foray through the pages of Victorian manners, mores, and murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

2 Lovesey, Peter Bloodhounds (A Peter Diamond mystery)

Spine somewhat slanted, bumping/edgewear, ex-lib w/ usual stamps. Spine starting to separate at title page. DJ in protective cover, minor bumping. Text is bright & attractive.

"Head of the Bath murder squad, Peter Diamond isn’t exactly up to his elbows in bodies in the placid resort. He’s bored, a bit testy, and ready for an old-fashioned mystery. Alas, when one does come along it’s not in his division; it’s a half-million-dollar heist by a thief who first has sent a rhyming riddle to all the local radio stations. Diamond is ready to throw his weight around to help solve the robbery, but before he can step on any toes, a body turns up and the corpse is in his court. There’s only one catch. It’s impossible for anyone to have committed the crime. The victim belongs to an elite group of mystery lovers called the Bloodhounds. The body is inside a padlocked houseboat, and the only key is in the pocket of a man with an ironclad alibi. The murderer cannot logically have left the scene, yet the victim is definitely not a suicide. Has one of the other Bloodhounds decided to commit the perfect crime? Was the heist and its verse a red herring, part of a labyrinthine plot by a twisted mind?"; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

3 Lovesey, Peter Mad Hatter's Holiday
New York, NY Dodd, Mead & Co. 1973 0396068359 / 9780396068358 Hardcover Fair in Good dust jacket 

Ex-library with usual markings and stamps plus back fep torn out. Spine slanted, corners bumped, some edge wear/chipping. Front board is separated from end papers exposing the webbing. Jacket is enclosed in protective wraps and taped to boards, showing some edge wear/darkening.

"Victorian Brighton in 1882 is the setting of this novel of crime and tangled emotions. Albert Moscrop, a visitor whose holiday is dedicated to peering through a telescope at the seaside scene, marches down the Queen's Road to the beach and draws us through a sequence of disarmingly trivial observations into a compelling drama, played in the fashionable haunts of the 19th century resort: beach, piers, promenade, swimming bath, aquarium and Devil's Dyke. A keen student of human nature, Moscrop concentrates his interest on one particular family of holiday-makers-the Protheros, and especially the beautiful Zena Prothero, whose husband appears to take her excessively for granted. Gradually Moscrop moves into the circle of the Prothero family, only to become involved in a sensational murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
