As a long-time fan of author Peter Lovesey, I've been meaning to read The False Inspector Dew for many years. I finally bought the Kindle edition because I noticed it on a list of the 100 best mysteries ever written. And, indeed, it's probably my favorite of Lovesey's books so far. Set primarily in 1921 on a trans-Atlantic passage of the RMS Mauretania (sister ship of the Lusitania), it's original, witty, true to period, surprising, and concisely told. So, as a mystery novel I would give it 4 stars.
HOWEVER, the Kindle edition is without a doubt the sloppiest electronic book I have ever had the misfortune to buy. It is riddled with errors, sometimes more than a few in a single sentence. Clearly the Kindle edition was scanned from an earlier, print edition and the publisher neglected to have the new ms. copy edited before unleashing it on the public. To me, this constitutes utter contempt for the reader and is the low-water mark of how far publishing has sunk. The apparent culprits are the folks at SoHo Crime. SHAME ON YOU!!! I will never buy a SoHo Crime Kindle edition again.

Lovesey often gives the sense his tongue is firmly in his cheek. The False Inspector Dew reads as though it were written in the 40s: the characters are drawn as wry twists on old cliches, sailing along (literally) in their frothy, and quietly funny, quest for love and bungled adventure. The False Inspector is not what he seems (like many of the characters). Like Chance in Being There, Walter is imbued by everyone else with characteristics he just doesn't have. Lovesey pokes fun at romance (particularly with the wistful and foolish heroine), detection (the ship's officer whom the false inspector displaces is equally as bad a dectective as our hero) and finally with plot, which he twists to suit his neat but far fetched needs. The cast springs from the Victorian parlors: the shipboard Johnny, the nearly harumphing captain, the well heeled family trying to marry off their daughter, the light fingered and lovely shill, and the aw-darn, I-really-liked-him murderer. This is not a slap your knee comedy, but your leg is consistently pulled in a dry English humor sort of way. There seems to be a real, honest to God, genuine mistake in the book, where one character refers to a character by the true name which hasn't yet been revealed. I re-read that part, thinking that Lovesey was having another go at my leg, but no, I think it really slipped through. This is a book best read where you can sit smiling to yourself without anyone asking you what the joke is. I had the sense that Lovesey has read all the old detective novels, and seen all the black and white movies and is having his way with them and us.

I also enjoyed this book, until I came to the anti-climatic end. However the biggest spoiler was all the typos in the Kindle version. Every page had multiple errors. This seems to be an on going problem with the Kindle books, though this is the worst one I've encountered. Folks, I still paid money for this book, the very least you could do is proof read it. This is annoying enough that if apple's iBooks are better, I will switch.

I enjoyed this book. It had interesting history, and character development and described the period in which it was set so well. Definitely did not see the twist at the end coming at all.
Jake
This was by far one of the most interesting mystery i've read in a long time. Terrific story line.

I have to admit I stumbled through the beginning of this novel---finally got caught up in it and went back to the beginning to re-read. It worked great after that. I am of an "advanced age" and wonder if the problem is me----or not? I still consider this author one of my favorite----keep it coming, please.

A very entertaining book. It kept me reading steadily all the way through. I have enjoyed every Peter Lovesey that I've read. All of his Peter Diamond books are excellent. False Inspector Dew is a very intertaining character, and I remember the story long after reading it. For me, that's the best indicator of a good book.
As always, Peter Lovesey delivers a great story. This one has plenty of clues, plenty of character, and an end that will amaze you. Loved it.
