The Stone Wife

Chaucer. Readers who delight in a well-constructed crime novel that includes ample red herrings are those most likely to enjoy reading the 14th installment in the Peter Diamond series by Peter Lovesey titled, The Stone Wife. A Chaucer scholar is murdered at an auction while he is bidding on a stone sculpture which he believes depicts the Wife of Bath. While Diamond takes center stage on the case, the whole team contributes to solving the crime. I was especially pleased with all the exposition of Ingeborg’s undercover work to identify the source of the murder weapon. Mystery fans can enjoy this novel as a standalone, but those who read the series will find enhanced reading pleasure from deeper insight into all the fascinating recurring characters.
