Holy Disorders takes Oxford don and part-time detective Gervase Fen to the town of Tolnbridge, where he is happily bounding around with a butterfly net until the cathedral organist is murdered, giving Fen the chance to play sleuth. The man didn't have an enemy in the world, and even his music was inoffensive: could he have fallen foul of a nest of German spies or of the local coven of witches, ominously rumored to have been practicing since the 17th century?
"Fen at his very best." (New York Times Book Review)
"Holy Disorders, uncannily recreates the mood of an antiquarian ghost story." (Washington Post)
"A master of the whodunnit…he combines a flawless plot, witty dialogue, and a touch of hilarity." (New York Times)
"Beneath a formidable exterior he had unsuspected depths of frivolity." (Philip Larkin)

Excellent boys own adventure
A good performance and easy going detective story with engaging characters. Spies and murder bring a war time Britain to life.

Classic Crispin with some laugh out loud moments and another of his homage to M R James ghost stories. I guessed the killer early on but this didn't spoil my enjoyment.
