Review by

Another little slice of life from Montalban. His detective fiction is certainly an acquired taste - and it helps if you have a gourmet's palatte to really appreciate the subtlety on offer here. Once more our book-burning detective is thrust into a mysterious case, with a cover-up, a twist, a betrayal and an uncertain conclusion all laying in wait for him.
