Fancy a bit of political theory mixed up with your murder? a group of Danish
students with daring plans for a new world order? a scam involving some
missing music scores? wolf-ravens in Scandinavian folklore? Then this is the
book for you!
Inspector Wickfield and Sergeant Hewitt are invited to take on the
investigation into the murder of a woman in the St John’s Wood area of
London. The metropolitan police have arrested her husband, and, although he
vigorously protests his innocence, Wickfield, like his colleagues before
him, finds it difficult to believe him. The investigation takes a different
turn when the inhabitants of a sleepy manor-house in Gloucestershire are
outraged by the appearance of a dog’s head and a dead rook mounted on a
spike in their drive.
Follow the inspector in an intricate and baffling investigation in which
only a brainwave saves his reputation. Allow the narrator to lead you by the
hand (or possibly by the nose) until, it may be, the light dawns on you
before it dawns on the inspector.
Gracious English, dry wit, learned asides, well-researched background – all
the Falconer hallmarks are here.
