About this title

Synopsis:

Unconvinced that a former convict and millionaire philanthropist has been murdered by his suicide-victim ex-wife, detective inspector Jack Spratt and his assistant, Mary Mary, battle internal politics while uncovering a plot involving money laundering, bullion smuggling, and asylum-seeking titans. By the author of The Eyre Affair. 75,000 first printing.

From the Back Cover:

"A wonderfully readable riot . . . [A] cleverly plotted, magically overstuffed yet amazingly digestible book . . . This summer’s perfect beach read for eggheads."
—The Wall Street Journal

"As if the Marx brothers were let loose in the children’s section of a strange bookstore."
—USA Today

"Pythonesque . . . Like the Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket books, this one is abundantly playful without being truly geared for children. Anyone who has ever been read a nursery rhyme . . . can appreciate Mr. Fforde’s outlandish joking."
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
