A second installment of the satirical Nursery Crime series that began with The Big Over Easy finds Jack Spratt, having been demoted for his poor judgment during the Mr. Bun poisoning, pursuing leads about the disappearance of star reporter "Goldy" Hatchett, whose case is bizarrely related to the Gingerbreadman serial killer investigation. 50,000 first printing.

About the Author:

Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring vacantly out of the window and arranging words on a page. He lives and writes in Wales. The Eyre Affair was his first novel in the bestselling "Thursday Next" series. He is also the author of the "Nursery Crime" series.

From AudioFile:

Jasper Fforde continues his tales of the Nursery Crime unit of the Reading Police Department, where Detectives Jack Spratt and Mary Mary investigate crimes involving fairy tale figures. With his perfectly clipped British accent, Simon Vance does his usual expert performance. In this case, he makes the improbable, unlikely, and downright ridiculous seem perfectly normal. It would be hard to imagine this novel without him. The plot includes the escape of the vicious serial killer the Gingerbreadman and the hunt for the missing gossip columnist, Goldy. Prime suspects are the Three Bears she was once involved with. But was there a fourth bear? Fforde is also known for his bestselling Thursday Next series.
