Publisher's Summary

A rare stamp and a corpse are discovered in Bath within hours of each other. As he investigates, Inspector Peter Diamond discovers that both the person who found the stamp and the victim belong to the Bloodhounds, an elite group of mystery lovers, who now urge Diamond to bring the murderer to justice. But there's a hitch: the body lies inside a padlocked houseboat and the only key is in the pocket of a man with an airtight alibi.

Critic Reviews

"Lovesey demonstrates that his embrace of crime fiction reaches from John Dickson Carr to Andrew Vachss as he skillfully pays homage to the old style whodunit in this thoroughly modern mystery." (Publishers Weekly)

Oh no! The reader! I cannot listen to another word

What did you like best about Bloodhounds? What did you like least?

The reader's inflection is not remotely related to what he is saying. It is sing-song and boring

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cannot listen to enough to say

What didn’t you like about Michael Healy’s performance?

Everything!

Did Bloodhounds inspire you to do anything?

Find another book to listen to.

Clever plot with great suspects

Well written, the plot development is intricate and the characters richly explored. The investigative process stays at the center despite the clear sense that Diamond will succeed.
