From David

Headhunters by Peter Lovesey. Soho Crime. $24.00

Peter Lovesey returns with his thirtieth novel, and second to feature Chichester DCI Henrietta Mallin. When two girls, Jo and Gemma, begin an innocent conversation about killing one of their bosses, that’s really all it is: innocent. But things take an abrupt change when Jo discovers the body of a half naked woman on Selsey Beach a short time later. When a second body turns up, also the victim of an apparent drowning, Hen Mallin and her team are handed the task of discovering if the deaths are accidental or if there’s a killer on the loose whose preferred method of dispatch is water. Lovesey is on the top of his game here and fans of the traditional British mystery won’t be disappointed. All the clues are laid bare, but things in Lovesey’s novels are rarely what they seem, especially when he sets his sights on placing the seemingly innocent in a tangled web of deceit.

Peter will be at The Poisoned Pen to sign Headhunters on
