Maxwell's Crossing

SCHOOL CAN BE MURDER ...At Leighford High, the ever-resourceful Peter 'Mad Max' Maxwell is temporarily promoted to Head of History when his colleague Paul Moss is chosen for an American exchange. Paul's counterpart is Hector Gold, who is accompanied to Leighford by his eccentric family, including his wife Camille and her parents, Jeff and Alana O'Malley. It soon becomes clear that Jeff O'Malley is quite a character - with money to burn he has been gate-crashing the local poker school, much to the dismay of its members. When events take a sinister turn and one of the poker school's members is found murdered, newly promoted Inspector Jacquie Carpenter Maxwell and Henry Hall investigate. Is this simply a case of murder as revenge? Maxwell, aiding them in solving the case, thinks there may be more to it ...

'The seventeenth Mad Max Maxwell book, and one of the very best I've ever read. Maxwell is on sparkling form in this hilarious romp with just a touch of danger...The magic lies in the dialogue and the relationships...Terrific fun, but when you think about it, it's finely crafted in a John Creasey kind of way, and a very fine detective fiction indeed...Unmissable.'
