2.5 stars. Unsympathetic characters. Only got interesting near the end. ( )

This is my least favorite of the Lovesey novels I have read so far, which is not that I don't think it is a fine book. I suppose I prefer the character of Diamond better and the literary backdrops in many of his Diamond books. The character development in this mystery is very fine, great psychological depth. Jake is a great character, as are Jo and Gemma. For some reason this book made me quite edgy. ( )

Another winner from Lovesey, reminds me of one of his other non-series books - The Reaper - which I read and loved several years ago. This one has a slightly humorous patina too but don't let that fool you, because underneath is a cracking mystery with some believable and likeable characters. ( )

"The Headhunters" is a thoroughly delightful detective story, old-fashioned in the way that reminds us why we started reading and loving mysteries in the first place.
