Widowed van driver Bob Naylor is prodded into joining the Chichester Writers’ Circle by his teenage daughter. Bob writes limericks and jingles, and fears he will be out of his class among the literati. But the members of the circle come from all walks of life and practice many forms of writing, from fantasy to household hints. There seems to be nothing about any of them to incite a serial killer. However, there is an arsonist in their midst, burning his victims to death, and Bob becomes a suspect. To clear himself, he must cooperate with formidable Detective Chief Inspector Henrietta Mallin.

    " I checked thisout since the next in the Peter Diamond series was checked out, and I prefer to read a series in order. This was not quite as up to the mark as The Last Detective, but still a great mystery. "

    " I found this to be somewhat slow and I did not care for most of the characters. The twist at the end was good, but that's about all. I doubt I will be reading any more Peter Lovesey books. "
