Peter Lovesey’s short stories have won him international acclaim, many awards and a wide readership. This new collection again demonstrates his exceptional talent in crafting bite-sized who- how- and whydunnits of great satisfaction.

As he says to the reader in his foreword, ‘If these stories are comfortable reading I am failing in my job. My hope is that you will find in them crimes that make your heart beat faster and twists that take your breath away. One or two at a sitting ought to be enough – which explains the title I chose.’

DO NOT EXCEED THE STATED DOSE can seriously damage your sleep . . .
