Waterstones Says

An exquisite parody of Golden Age crime fiction, Murder at Crime Manor spins every whodunit trope to side-splitting effect as Detective Roger le Carre must solve a murder for which he is the prime suspect.

Detective Roger LeCarre. Scourge of crime. Guardian of Exeter. Amateur squash player. And now, party guest at Powderham, the manor house owned by mysterious billionaire tech genius Eli Quartz.

It is a small and unconventional gathering: the Bishop, a fading radio star, a desperate aristocrat, the aging butler and his absurdly beautiful daughter - and Detective Roger LeCarre. Then a snowstorm blows in and the group realise they are trapped.

And when, completely against expectations for this kind of situation, someone winds up dead, it's obvious who must solve the crime. Obvious, but for the fact the murder weapon was in Detective Roger LeCarre's hand, and the body was at his feet.

From the creator of BBC2's Martin Fishback comes the second Detective Roger LeCarre crime fiction parody, daring to go where so many other crime novels have gone before.

MEDIA REVIEWS

What's better than a good crime novel? I'll tell you - a spoof crime novel, by the absurdly funny and clever Fergus Craig - Miranda Hart

Fergus Craig is one of the funniest people I know and this book proves it. I can't wait for you to get involved in his VERY silly thriller. We all need more laughs like this - Aisling Bea

Laugh out loud funny. Detective Roger Le Carre is a crime-solving comedy GOD - Mark Billingham

Tea-spittingly hilarious. Shades of Spike Milligan, Douglas Adams and Alan Partridge - Chris Brookmyre

Funny and gripping - Dara Ó Briain

A book so funny it makes you wish you were the subject of a murder investigation in Exeter - Al Murray

Exceptionally funny... crime writing (in the Exeter area) will never be the same - Marcus Brigstocke

I laughed out loud at the very first line. And it just got funnier from there. Like Les Dawson playing the piano, Fergus Craig is a master of brilliantly hilarious terrible writing. - Richard Herring
