Description

When a poet, Richard Cadogan, receives an unexpected advance from his publisher for his new book, he goes to Oxford for a well-deserved holiday. The change of scenery is what he needs to recover his inspiration for writing, but what he envisioned as a leisurely time spent on long walks and visiting friends will turn into a mystery-solving adventure full of unexpected and dangerous twists. Luckily for the puzzled poet his old university friend Gervase Fen is ready to plunge into the midst of this mystery.

Should you really never judge a book by its cover? Had I gone along with that dictum years ago I would not have happened upon Edmund Crispin. Shameful though it is to admit it, I was attracted not by the name of the author – unknown to me – but by a Penguin Crime jacket. Its green and cream design caught my eye at an Amnesty International book sale in the church opposite our house. Our dining-room had recently been redecorated, and I judged Frequent Hearses would, suitably displayed, tone with the colour scheme . . .
