Buried for Pleasure
By

Rating
In the sleepy English village of Sanford Angelorum, Professor Gervase Fen is taking a break from his books to run for Parliament. At first glance, the village he s come to canvass appears perfectly peaceful, with helpful inhabitants, a delightful inn and rustic charm. But Fen soon discovers that appearances can be deceptive- someone in the village has discovered a dark secret and is using it for blackmail. Anyone who comes close to uncovering the blackmailer s identity is swiftly dispatched. As the joys of politics wear off, Fen sets his mind to the mystery but finds himself caught up in a tangled tale of eccentric psychiatrists, escaped lunatics, beautiful women and lost heirs.

About the Author

Edmund Crispin was the pseudonym of Bruce Montgomery, an English crime writer and composer. He graduated from St John's College, Oxford, in 1943, with a BA in modern languages, having for two years been its organist and choirmaster. From 1943 to 1945 he taught at Shrewsbury School and in 1944 published the first of nine Gervase Fen novels, The Case of the Gilded Fly. He became a well respected reviewer of crime, writing for the Sunday Times from 1967 until his death in 1978. He also composed the music for many of the Carry On films.

Reviews

" Both the mature and the discerning young choose to pick up one of Crispin's beautifully turned crime novels" The Times "Crispin isn't in it for the mystery, but for the enigmas" Guardian "His books are full of high spirits and excellent jokes, with constant literary allusions and an atmosphere of bibulous good humour. But at times the mood turns darker, and Crispin is capable of passages of both genuine suspense and ingenius deduction" The Daily Telegraph "Crispin is noted for an ability to embellish clever story lines with Marx Brothers touches" New York Times "Rightly elevated to classic status" New York Sun
