Publisher's Summary

Dandelions and hearing aids, a bloodstained cat, a Leonardo drawing, a corpse with an alibi, a truly poisonous letter...just some of the unusual clues that Oxford don/detective Gervase Fen and his friend Inspector Humbleby are confronted with in this sparkling collection of short mystery stories by one of the great masters of detective fiction.

Elegantly crafted short stories

Similar to Beware of the Trains, this book is a compilation of short stories, some featuring Fen and Humbleby and some without either. One or two have a nasty twist in the tail but on the whole are satisfying. Narration is excellent. I didn't enjoy this as much as Beware of the Trains (and one story is repeated from there) but on the whole, it's a worthwhile buy.

Great Crispin shorts

A good collection of short stories. Well read. One for the Crispin/Fen fan or a lover of classic crimes.
