On Monday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m., master of mysteries Peter Lovesy will visit the library to discuss his latest novel, The Stone Wife in the library’s meeting room.

Acclaimed author of over 30 mystery novels, Mr. Lovesey has recently been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by critics from The Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, The Strand, Time Magazine and NPR.

Refreshments will be served at the event.

The Stone Wife is an investigative procedural at its finest. When a competitive-bidding war for a rare carved stone is interrupted by three masked men who kill the highest bidder, Bath police superintendant Peter Diamond and his team investigate the carving’s mystical origins while Diamond’s police colleague Ingeborg goes undercover to learn about the murder weapon.

According to a Booklist starred review, “One of the great things about reading one of Lovesey’s police procedurals…is the natural way Diamond’s cases take the reader into the history of Bath itself…details on archaeological digs, local museums, auction houses, ancient Roman walls, and, especially, on Chaucer’s Wife of Bath.”

Mr. Lovesey is the author of more than thirty highly praised mystery novels including the Sergeant Cribb books that launched the long-running PBS series Mystery!. He has been awarded the CWA Gold and Silver Daggers and the Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement, as well as many US honors. He lives in Sussex, England.

[email protected] is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library board of trustees and contributions by generous donors. Books will be available for purchase and signing through Diane’s Books. This series is open to all at no charge, but seating in the meeting room is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
