9780099542148: Swan Song

When an opera company gathers in Oxford for the first post-war production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger their happiness is soon soured by the discovery that the unpleasant Edwin Shorthouse will be singing a leading role. Nearly everyone involved has reason to loathe Shorthouse but who amongst them has the fiendish ingenuity to kill him?

Review:

"A splendid reminder of the intricate craft involved in creating a superior locked room mystery... Crispin provides neatly observed characters, clues honestly presented, a denouement which is both outrageous and satisfying and a splendidly offhand opening" (The Times)

"The books are fast, fun and smart, their hero charming, frivolous, brilliant and badly behaved" (New Review)

"One of the most literate mystery writers of the twentieth century" (Boston Globe)

Book Description:
