Wobble to Death : The First Sergeant Cribb Mystery Paperback / softback

Part of the Sergeant Cribb series

Paperback / softback

Description

The first book in the Sergeant Cribb series, from Peter Lovesey. In Victorian London, race-walking, or 'wobbles', are all the rage.

So on a Monday morning in November 1879 the crowds gather for Islington's bizarre six-day endurance walking race. By Tuesday, one of the contestants is dead. Tetanus from a blister is assumed, but then there is a second death, and this time it's definitely murder.

A bemused Sergeant Cribb from Scotland Yard is called in, along with Constable Thackeray, and they soon discover that something foul is at play. Reissue of Peter Lovesey's first acclaimed book that started his career nearly 50 years ago.
