In 1870s London, speedwalking endurance contests called "Wobbles" were very popular. Highly lauded mystery writer Peter Lovesey chose one such event - a six-day, 500-mile doozy - as the setting for his debut novel. When one of the competitors dies suspiciously, earnest military man turned policeman Sergeant Cribb is put on the case while the racers wobble on - and a murderer is on the loose. This sparkling historical mystery is rich with compelling characters and complex motivations. A surprising and entertaining read! (CH)
