The No. 2 Global Detective : A Parody, Paperback / softback Book

The No. 2 Global Detective : A Parody Paperback / softback


Cuff College of Transgression and Pathology, Oxford.

The quiet of the evening is shattered by the discovery of a Body In The Library. The police are Baffled. Tom Hurst, a junior lecturer at the College, breaking every rule of the whodunnit genre, follows a trail of arcane clues that leads him to Botswana and Mma Delicious Ontoast. His investigations then take him to Sweden and Burt Colander; to Edinburgh, where he is grudgingly helped by DI John "Just-Now" Rhombus; and to Richmond, Virginia, where he meets the brilliant, attractive-in-a-powerfulway, midnight-blue-pantsuited forensic pathologist Dr Su Carpaccio. Sometimes one supersleuth just isn't enough. The No.2 Global Detective revisits and rewrites some of the most famous crime novels of recent times, taking the genre and its heroes to an ultimately hilarious extreme.
