About this title


Arriving late at night for a holiday in Oxford, the poet Richard Cadogan stumbles across the body of a dead woman in a toyshop. When he returns with the police, the toyshop is a grocery store and there is no sign of the corpse.
Cadogan joins forces with the eccentric Professor Gervase Fen to solve the mystery. Battling with limerick clues, an unusual will, an impossible murder and disappearing evidence, the bookish duo rampage through the university town determined to find answers.
Crispin's most famous novel, The Moving Toyshop is fast-paced, funny and full of entertaining literary puzzles.

About the Author:

Edmund Crispin was the pseudonym of Bruce Montgomery, an English crime writer and composer. He graduated from St John's College, Oxford, in 1943, with a BA in modern languages, having for two years been its organist and choirmaster. From 1943 to 1945 he taught at Shrewsbury School and in 1944 published the first of nine Gervase Fen novels, The Case of the Gilded Fly. He became a well respected reviewer of crime, writing for the Sunday Times from 1967 until his death in 1978. He also composed the music for many of the Carry On films.
