* Viking will publish Jane Langton's 13th Homer Kelly mystery, The Face on The Wall, in January 1998 What is Homer Kelly doing in Oxford, England? In addition to working as a visiting lecturer, he's playing part-time detective, trying to solve the great questions of life and, along the way, the death of a young priest who has left a cryptic note saying simply, The answer is no. As he sets off on his search for answers to this most real and inauspicious death, Homer also begins a philosophical journey far more challenging than any begun in a classroom, and discovers a crime much more sinister and troubling: God himself seems dead as a dodo. Who committed murder sublime?

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.About the Author:
