9780140117721: Holy Disorders (Classic Crime)

Professor Gervase Fen was spending some time in the cathedral town of Tolnbridge, and had become deeply interested in entymology. But from studying the habits of the clergy and chasing insects with a butterfly net, he turned his hunting proclivities towards murderers, spies and witches.

Review:

"I very much enjoy Edmund Crispin, who's extremely frivolous, with a marvellous comic sense" (P.D. James)

"Fen at his very best" (New York Times Book Review)

"Holy Disorders, uncannily recreates the mood of an antiquarian ghost story" (Washington Post)

"A master of the whodunnit... he combines a flawless plot, witty dialogue, and a touch of hilarity" (New York Times)

"Beneath a formidable exterior he had unsuspected depths of frivolity" (Philip Larkin)

From the Publisher:

Who crushed to death a cathedral organist who didn't have an enemy in the world? Only Gervase Fen can track down the murderer in this witty and surreal whodunnit
