Publisher's Summary

In the sleepy English village of Sanford Angelorum, Professor Gervase Fen is taking a break from his books to run for Parliament. At first glance, the village he's come to canvass appears perfectly peaceful, but Fen soon discovers that appearances can be deceptive: Someone in the village has discovered a dark secret and is using it for blackmail. Anyone who comes close to uncovering the blackmailer's identity is swiftly dispatched. As the joys of politics wear off, Fen sets his mind to the mystery but finds himself caught up in a tangled tale of eccentric psychiatrists, escaped lunatics, beautiful women and lost heirs.

Pure Pleasure

This is the best Gervase Fen book I've heard to date. I read a lot of Edmund Crispin's work many years ago and it's nice to see them finally being released in unabridged audio format. Fen is more mature and less "fluffy" than in, say, The Moving Toyshop and the book has a few different plot lines, all easy to follow. I have to say I almost guessed whodunnit from the clues given away in the story but not quite. I did guess a few other trifles though. All in all, I loved this book. I've listened to it a few times now and enjoyed it every time. The narration is good and well paced, with characterisation given for each participant. Worth buying!

fen ventures into politics.

Any additional comments?

I didn't like this story and as much as the previous ones but then I am not that interested in politics. I really enjoyed the car chase and the ending.
