    Terrific read This book was really a great read. The combination of historical characters and modern day police procedure was right up my alley. I love reading about the city of Bath, a place I fell in love with when I visited. All of this combined with really good characters and an...

    I?ve read every book by Lovesey, put out under that name at least (and not counting short story collections), except for the last two books in the Bertie series. Well, there are a few others ? at some point a ton of nonfiction sports books suddenly appeared on his profile here at G...
