Although "The Summons" was first published in 1995, British author Peter Lovesey writes entertaining puzzlers in the tradition of the Golden Age of mystery writing. "The Summons" won the 1995 Silver Dagger Award from the Crime Writers' Association of the United Kingdom. Sometimes, this novel is difficult to understand due to the differences between British English and American English and the use of British expressions. I would rate "The Summons" at 4.0 stars.
