Book: Murder on the Short List

I rated this an A because Lovesey has created some of my favorite characters: Rosemary and Thyme, Bertie, The Prince of Wales, and Sergeant Cribb. His stories have engaging twists, such as an old schoolchum confessing to inadvertently murdering the wrong man--when he really wanted to get rid of his classmate so his mother could see him as an "invisible" ballboy in Center Court at Wimbleton. The language is delightful; "The hip-swinging became a touch less energetic when Chelsea Barracks came up on his right. It wouldn't be wise to over-excite the army."

Grade: A
