'England's funniest crime writer' The Times 'Charming and full of surprises' Booklist Strange things happen in the picture-postcard English village of Lindsay Carfax. When a young man falls into a quarry, it takes nine days to find the body. When rowdy hippies descend on the village, they're given nine days to leave. When an outspoken schoolmaster is kidnapped for nine days, he stays eerily quiet after his release. Now Albert Campion has come to town - meaning to investigate all this strangeness. But whoever is behind the unusual goings-on quickly makes it very clear that his nosing around is not welcome. Undeterred by threats, Campion is determined to expose the criminal masterminds hiding in this sleepy village.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ripley excels at presenting Campion, whose toff drawl and effete mannerisms hide an astute crime-solving brain -- MARCEL BERLINS * * Times * *
He's produced a whimsical, delightful, witty, entertaining book that's part Jeeves and Wooster, part Laurel and Hardy, and part Miss Marple. [ . . . ] Charming and full of surprises * * Booklist * *
Ripley is especially good at recreating the humorous wordplay of the originals . . . and does so in service of a well-crafted plot that plausibly places the detective, who debuted in 1929, in a more contemporary setting * * Publishers Weekly * *
England's funniest crime writer * * The Times * *
