"The Complete Prince of Wales Mysteries collects all three of Peter Lovesey's charming and thrilling Bertie adventures in a single volume for the first time. Albert Edward, Prince of Wales--Bertie, as he's known--is the eldest son of Queen Victoria and future King Edward VII. Bertie is a pleasure seeker, always searching out the best meals, the most beautiful women, and the most lavish parties. As Prince Regent, Bertie is expected to behave like a proper royal and avoid scandal. Instead, his love of excitement leads him to a decidedly unprincely hobby: sleuthing. Bertie is not the best detective, but that does not stop him from trying to solve every case that crosses his path, including the feverish suicide of the greatest jockey of the century, the mysterious death of a member of the royal hunting party, and the murder of the son-in-law of an old friend"--

" Becoming Bertie: An introduction by Peter Lovesey; Bertie and the Tin Man; Bertie and the Seven Bodies; Bertie and the Crime of Passion." " Fred Archer was the foremost jockey of the nineteenth century, the rider of more than 2700 winners. At the high point of his career, aged 29, he spoke his last words--'Are they coming?'---put a gun to his head and killed himself. The largest wreath on Archer's coffin when it was driven through Newmarket to the grave was from his royal patron, the Prince of Wales./ Bertie is the sleuth who outwits Scotland Yard and the Surete and is at least the equal of Hercule Poirot---if he is to be believed."
