In 1879, race walking competitions, known as ?wobbles,? were all the rage. The death of a contender, followed by a second murder, introduces Sergeant Cribb, who goes on to investigate sports-related deaths in a series of eight books.
Peter Lovesey is the author of twenty-five highly praised mystery novels and has been awarded the Crime Writers? Association Gold, Silver, and Diamond Dagger awards as well as many US honors. This was his first mystery. He lives in West Sussex, England.
Sinossi: A Sgt Cribb mystery. In the freezing Agricultural Hall, London, in November 1879, crowds gather to bet on a marathon walking race, in which the competitors walk around the Hall for six days. Conditions are barbaric and rivalries even worse, and soon Cribb is investigating a ruthless murder.
