Wobble To Death by Peter Lovesey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Well this was fun. Who knew that Lovesey came to mystery writing through his love for the Victorian sporting world?
And who knew that a "wobble" was a six day pedestrian race?
And who knew that Piccadilly Weepers were another term for mutton-chops?
Lovesey evokes Victorian England fairly well for someone who has read a lot of Dickens and Doyle but I would have enjoyed more of a portrait of the time.
