A true gem
on 23 April 2003
If you've read Crispin's 'The Moving Toyshop' you'll already be wanting to read this book, if you've read neither 'The Moving Toyshop' or 'Holy Disorders' then you've missed a couple of real treats.
'Holy Disorders' is one of my favourite Crispin novels featuring great characters who whilst they perhaps border on caricatures are such great fun it would be churlish to complain. The setting is a small town in wartime England and centres around the local clergy. It features Gervase Fen, the wonderfully eccentric Professor of English, a true Don. Humour and tight clever plotting recall Michael Innes or Carter Dickson at their very best.
Highly recommended for lovers of the classic English crime novel.
