Review - The Detective Wore Silk Drawers by Peter Lovesey

  • Paperback: 240 pages
  • Publisher: Soho Constable (October 1, 2008) 
  • ISBN-10: 1569475245 
Set in Victorian England, bare fisted fighting is illegal yet fights still occur. when a body is found clearly connected to the illegal sport, Sergeant Cribb sends constable Jago undercover to investigate and find the identity of the headless dead body and the killer. The book is filled with fights and a side of England I for one was totally unfamiliar with. I felt sorry for Jago at many turns especially when he tried to avoid massages by the woman responsible for his fights.  

I really enjoyed the book, but there were not many suspects or motives to explore would be my only criticism.
