Item description for Bertie and the Seven Bodies (Prince of Wales Mysteries) by Peter Lovesey...

The eldest son of Queen Victoria, "Bertie" will one day be King Edward VII. For the moment, though, his primary responsibility is to enjoy himself, a task at which he excels -- bedding society beauties, betting on sporting events, tormenting his long-suffering wife, and taking his royal bulk off to other people's country estates, there to shoot things, eat enormous meals, and goose the occasional serving maid. It is at just such an estate that the story unfolds, though this is no ordinary shooting-party. The guest-list, of course, is glittering, featuring a famous lady explorer, a beautiful actress, and several gentlemen known to be good with guns. Unfortunately, the guest-list dwindles rapidly, as one member after another turns up dead, but Bertie greets the murders with a certain delight, as they allow him to exercise his passion for amateur sleuthing (a task at which he doesn't particularly excel). Lovesey wrote Seven Bodies as an homage to Agatha Christie, but he laced his classically structured puzzle with his own sly, irresistible wit, gleefully poking fun at the pomposities of privilege. A Prince of Wales Mystery

Reviews - What do customers think about Bertie and the Seven Bodies (Prince of Wales Mysteries)?

Worst Lovesey Book I've read  Feb 16, 2003
Pretty absurd plot. Lovesey is generally a brilliant author, but this novel is tiresome and implausible. Although the Bertie series is not his best, other stories in this series are far better. Unless you have an overwhelming interest in the parlor games played by Victorian royalty, stay away.
Prince Albert Goes Detecting  Jun 1, 2000
This is a hilarious mystery as Prince Albert tries to prove his deductive abilities by finding the culprit who is committing serial murders paced on the Monday's Child rhyme. Of coure, his reasoning is usually way off and part of the fun is watching others deflate his ego with the correct explanation of his deductions. Nevertheless, Bertie shows a penchant for relying on royal privilege to get his way. A great comic historical mystery.
