Invitation to a Dynamite Party

The beloved Sergeant Cribb series by Peter Lovesey

The year is 1884. London is being terrorised by a series of bomb blasts – even within Great Scotland Yard! Reluctantly, Sergeant Cribb attends a course in the science of infernal machines in a bid to gain expert knowledge of explosives and beat the criminals at their own game.

Reviews

Lovesey goes from strength to strength. A really entertaining extravaganza, judged to a nicety
H. R. F. Keating, The Times
The period detail is admirable: the narrative both witty and swift
Edmund Crispin, Sunday Times
Tense and dramatic. The best book I have read for a long time
Birmingham Evening Mail
Cribb Takes a course in explosives, infiltrates the mob and brings things to a happy conclusion. It's fun
New York Times
At once fresh, very funny and cleverly plotted. Please sir, I want some more!
