Description

Love Lies Bleeding by Edmund Crispin.
Illustrated by A. Richard Allen and introduced by P. D. James.

A witty crime caper from the author of The Moving Toyshop, with evocative illustrations by A. Richard Allen.
When the scheduled speaker is unavailable, the headmaster of Castrevenford School invites English professor and amateur sleuth Gervase Fen to present the prizes on Speech Day. However, when a series of strange events culminates in the murder of two members of staff, Fen finds himself picking his way through a web of lies and misdirection, with what appears to be a long-lost Shakespeare play at its heart. Featuring a cast of fantastical characters, including highly strung teachers, plucky schoolgirls and a homicidal bloodhound called Mr Merrythought, this Gervase Fen mystery is golden age crime at its wittiest.

Quarter-bound in blocked buckram with printed paper sides, set in Photina with Pink Martini display.

216 pages, frontispiece and 6 colour illustrations, printed map endpapers.
With a plain slipcase.

Will consider swapping with other Folio Society books.
