"These erudite and wondrously witty books are unlike any police procedural you've ever read. THE TOOTH TATTOO is a case in point.... The murder investigation provides the structural framework for a group portrait of the eccentric members of this captivating ensemble and the music they play with such rapturous devotion."
—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Ingenious .... Lovers of good music and a good mystery should not miss this delightful tale."
—Washington Post Book World
"A particularly crafty resolution of the enigmatic mystery shows that this long-running series still has plenty of life."
—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
“Identifying the culprit takes something of a back seat to descriptions of the quartet and the difficult music its members play.... The insights into the personal dynamics of a string quartet are fascinating.
—PG Koch, The Houston Chronicle
"Lovesey is a puzzle master, and readers will happily chase his adroitly placed clues.... But Lovesey’s knowledge of classical music and his skill in describing it make 'The Tooth Tattoo' especially memorable and informative."
“Lovesey is the real deal .... [The Diamond novels] are deftly plotted, with strong characters and a good dollop of dry humor, especially the (generally) good-natured sniping among the members of his team.”
—The Seattle Times
"The old master does not disappoint. The Tooth Tattoo is a bravura performance." —Reviewing the Evidence
“I won’t string you along. I won’t be Haydn my feelings about the book, which I did enjoy very much. So just fugue-et about them and appreciate another entertaining Peter Diamond novel.”
—Ted Hertel, Deadly Pleasures
