This story has the oddest beginning - I had no idea what was going on and gave up on it for a while (my fiance did the same). However, if you do persevere it really is worth it. An exciting and fast paced second half.

I have read only one other Michael Innes, so I was a little unsure what to expect. Operation Pax however did not disappoint. Whilst the start is slow, it catches the imagination and reels you in so that by the middle of the book I had stopped questioning why and was eager for the next instalment. The whole oozes the feel of the late 40's/post war whilst not wallowing.
Innes descriptions of Oxford ensure that the city becomes a character in it's own right and the climax brought all the separate storylines together in a very satisfactory manner. The book itself is fabulously written, articulate and erudite without patronising. All in all a rollickingly good read I would recommend to all.
