Publisher's Summary

Private detective and poet Nigel Strangeways is invited to address the Maiden Astbury literary society. The picturesque Dorset town is home to Bunnett's Brewery, run by the much disliked, and feared, Eustace Bunnett and shortly before Nigel's visit, Bunnett's dog Truffles, was found dead in one of the brewery's vats.
The culprit was never caught - although there was no shortage of suspects - but when a body is then found in the same vat, boiled down to its bones, Nigel is called into action to help capture the killer.The third book in the Nigel Strangeways series, this is a gloriously inventive, puzzling and witty investigation to delight all fans of classic crime.


What the Critics Say

"A master of detective fiction" (Daily Telegraph)
"His plots are ingenious" (Times Literary Supplement)
"The Nicholas Blake books are something quite by themselves in English detective fiction." (Elizabeth Bowen)

Poor editing detracts from a good story

Any additional comments?

Kris Dyer does a fairly good job overall, but he has a rather halting approach when acting as the narrator, which can be annoying. The story is good, but the narration could have used an editor. There are several places where phrases are repeated, specially toward the end of the book.
