About this title


As a visiting professor at Oxford University, Homer Kelly expects a wonderful stay in England, but when the night watchman at Oxford's museum is murdered, Homer finds himself embroiled in a web of scholarship and deceit. 25,000 first printing.


Eccentric Harvard philosophy professor Homer Kelly and his sharp wife Mary are like a literary Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man fame. Jane Langston has put the frumpy professor through a series of whimsical mysteries for 30 years now, but this is the most original and fanciful. Combining hard-edged crime suspense with philosophical meanderings, a meditation on Darwinism, intellectual curiousity, Alice in Wonderland-styled zaniness, and a playful prose style, Dead as Dodo is joyful reading.
