5.0 out of 5 stars UK TITLE: "Frequent Hearses" (Chronicles of Crispin, Vol. 7), 13 July 2012
This review is from: Sudden Vengeance (Gervase Fen Mysteries) (Paperback)
This volume in the all-too-short Gervase Fen mystery series by Edmund Crispin is a fine addition to the series. Unfortunately, it is not part of the Vintage (Random House) set which were reprinted in 2009 with smart new covers and so can only be found second-hand, in this US version or electronically in a Kindle edition.

Fen finds himself in the world of cinema, working at a studio - which sounds very like Elstree - on an unlikely film based on the life of Alexander Pope. Almost immediately, he bumps into a character from previous volumes - Inspector Humbleby - and the game is suddenly `afoot'. Fen's sports car, Lily Christine III, also reappears in predictably unreliable form.

Like the previous book, Buried for Pleasure, the action has been moved out of Oxford, and the story is none the worse for this. There are murders to solve, quirky characters to meet, and a good deal of suspense to be had, particularly when the action moves to the countryside. Watch out for the maze...
