The murder of a call girl with links to the head of the British government's Central Crimes Bureau draws retired detective Ludo Fender back from inactivity

From Publishers Weekly:

When fat, clever, unlikely hero Ludovic Fender says to an aged aunt, "Surely to you I've always been an open book," she replies, "Written in a very peculiar language"--and she's right. Geddes ( Hangman ) here brings Fender back from rustication to straighten out a scandal in the British Central Crimes Bureau. The bureau, mandated to ferret out corruption, is headed by Antrim, who has suspicious ties to a ruthless tycoon and may also have a taste for kinky sex. The book begins with the seemingly unconnected deaths of a call girl in a car crash, and of an Irish Republican minister from AIDS. Treading warily, Fender brilliantly pulls together diverse strands, including a faked suicide, some actual and possible murders and deeds of lethal ambition at Ministerial levels. The rum, believable lot of characters, high level of wit ("A politician fondling his conscience in public is the ultimate indecency") and hints of future adventures for Fender take some of the sting out of the cynical ending. Ludovic Fender is a wonderful creation and this is a sophisticated, satisfying treat.
