From the Inside Flap
Young barrsiter Michael Cantrip has skipped of to the Channel Islands to take on a tax-law case that's worth a fortune -- if Cantrip's tax-planning cronies can locate the missing heir. But Cantrip has waded in way over his head. Strange things are happening on these mysterious, isolated isles. Something is going bump in the night -- and bumping off members of the legal team, one by one. Soon Cantrip is telexing the gang at the home office for help. And it's up to amateur investigator Hilaray Tamar (Oxford don turned supersleuth) to get Cantrip back to safety of his chambers -- alive! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

One of the standard motifs of these books is that one of the lawyers goes away and writes back to the others in London - this works brilliantly in Thus Was Adonis Murdered when Julia is on holiday in Venice, and The Shortest Way to Hades when Serena is sailing around the Greek islands. Here it's the turn of Cantrip, telexing (it's a new technology!) back to London, and he's always been the weakest of the group for me. His voice is too much like a modern-day Bertie Wooster to work for me, but that is a very subjective opinion.
So this is still a fun, funny, clever, articulate and witty romp of an elegant mystery - and fans of Cantrip will love it.
And there is another little twist - the sex of Professor Hilary Tamar is never revealed!
