9780140046182: Swing, Swing Together

“The late Victorian atmosphere and dialogue are beautifully and accurately rendered. The characters are done with a masterly hand. But perhaps the best thing about it is the way you feel all the time that this must be an account of a real-life crime, because nothing strikes a false note, nothing seems contrived.”—Ruth Rendell

An elementary school teacher in training takes a midnight swim in the Thames and witnesses a body being dumped. Cribb and Thackerey investigate and uncover strange parallels with the then-popular Jerome K. Jerome mystery Three Men in a Boat.

Review:

Praise for Swing, Swing Together

*Winner of the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière*

“Thames-side summer scenes plus real who-and-why puzzle add up to period piece of engaging charm.”
The Sunday Telegraph

“A relaxed and easy-going book, complete with traditional mystery traditionally solved. Enlivening the proceedings is a pert and attractive young lady who knows exactly what she wants.”
The New York Times

“Lovely flavour of the time . . . ‘Naked? Completely, darling. In the buff. It’s awfully good fun.’ And so it all is.”
The Scotsman

“The most light-hearted, but by no means the least compelling, of Lovesey’s books.”
The Times
