Praise for the Sergeant Cribb series:

“Sgt. Cribb and Constable Thackeray . . . went on to star in seven additional Victorian mystery novels and became the subjects of one of the first, and most entertaining, of the ‘Mystery!’ series on PBS.”—Otto Penzler, New York Sun

In the fifth Sergeant Cribb mystery, either anarchists or Irish terrorists are setting off explosions in public places. Is the villain an American athlete? A beautiful Irish woman? Could Constable Thackeray be involved?

Peter Lovesey is the author of twenty-six highly praised mystery novels and has been awarded the Crime Writers’ Association Gold, Silver, and Diamond daggers.
