    1. How dearly I love Sgt. Cribb! He's just so full of cute dichotomies. No problem at all learning how bombs are made or infiltrating a terrorist (Irish Republican) group - but one lovely young woman makes overt romantic, nay, sexual advances toward him and he goes all silly and confused. Again Lovesey provides us with a strong female character, but one slightly different than the others. She has her own dichotomies. Rossanna can be both ruthless and tender. She takes over organization of the plot [...]

    2. THE TICK OF DEATH. (1974). Peter Lovesey. ***.This is another mystery featuring the adventures of Sergeant Cribb and Constable Thackeray of Scotland Yard. A group of Irish terrorists have invaded Victorian England and are bombing buildings and monuments of importance to the average Englishman. Their plans also include the deaths of a variety of famous people in government and the arts who are against Irish independence. We soon learn that this terrorist group is supported by money and men from v [...]

    3. The year is 1884 and London is being terrorized by a series of bomb blasts--even within Scotland Yard. Trying to get inside information on the attacks, Sergeant Cribb is asked to attend a course in the science of "infernal machines", hoping to gain expert knowledge of explosives and beat the criminals at their own game. Unfortunately for Cribb, the main suspect in none other than his Scotland Yard partner Constable Thackeray. Doubting that Thackeray would be involved, Cribb joins an American-Iri [...]

    4. It's a rare book that you can come back to more than thirty years later and find out that you still like it. The Sergeant Cribb mysteries are classic British whodunits, but told with a skill that avoids the somewhat haughty tone common in the genre. Irish Home Rule has been a source of contention for many years. Blowing things up is nothing new, but the details of 19th Century technology and security enhance the story rather than bogging the reader down in details.

    5. London music hall culture circa 1886, good stuff. A serviceable entry in the period police procedural. I enjoyed reading it but am not sure it stands up to the light of day very well.

    6. 3.5 stars -- The topic of a 19th-century Irish terrorist cell didn't interest me much, but I like Lovesey's writing, so the book was fairly good overall.

    7. Sergeant Cribb is something of a Victorian James Bond in this installment. The series continues to be enjoyable.
