Martin Edwards, ed. - Motives for Murder

Sold out.

Hardcover Limited Edition - Signed by Martin Edwards and Peter Lovesey

Members of London's famed Detection Club have joined together to honor Peter Lovsey, winner multiple times of the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger and Silver Dagger, and the Cartier Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement. He has also won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar for Best Novel, as well as Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere. He is the creator of Victorian sleuths Sergeant Cribb and Constable Thackeray, Inspector Peter Diamond, and the almost-true-to-life Bertie Prince of Wales. 

The Detection Club was founded in 1930 by Anthony Berkeley. Its first Honorary President was G.K. Chesterton, to be succeeded by such luminaries as Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Julian Symons, H.R.F. Keating and Simon Brett. The current President, Martin Edwards, has edited this collection of new stories.
