The Tooth Tattoo by Peter Lovesey - 348 pages
From the cover: British criminal investigator Peter Diamond teams up with violist Mel Farran and discovers frightening truths about the cutthroat world of professional music.
This book scores several points with me from the beginning. It’s a mystery, set in England, in the world of classical music and musicians - a perfect trifecta of a novel. Lovesey writes three-dimensional characters and immerses the reader in his story, which holds plenty of dry British humor. I will be reading more of this series.
