"Peter Somerville-Large turns to the more relaxed world of black comedy. In particular to the world on the fringe of the antiques trade, where, he suggests, the antiques may just possibly be genuine but everything else is faked, and murder is as casually regarded by his characters as is short-changing a client. . . . which leads to a crazy conjunction of midnight raids, murder attempted and achieved, blackmail bungled, and much else. Drury's murder plans can be highly bizarre: murder by catapult, murder by champagne. The fun is wry, sharp and precisely realised. "; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
