Notes

First edition, first impression of the penultimate book featuring Oxford don and amateur sleuth Dr Gervase Fen, who first appeared in The Case of the Gilded Fly (1944) and next in Holy Disorders (1945). "Crispin's work is marked by a highly individual sense of light comedy, and by a great flair for verbal deception rather in the Christie manner" (Julian Symonds, Bloody Murder, From the Detective Story to the Crime Novel: A History, 1973, p. 152).
