In addition to his his nine, highly acclaimed, Gervase Fen novels, the author wrote concert music and the scores for almost 50 feature films under the name Bruce Montgomery.; This author recommended by Tom J. and Jerri C. of the ATS and AT and DES email discussion groups."The Moving Toyshop is considered to be Crispin's classic. It is a funny mystery set in Oxford and has Gervase Fen trying to track down a toy shop that seems to have disappeared!" The Moving Toy Shop is also one of crime novelist Val McDermid's top 10 Oxford novels."A classic crime novel that brings a streak of surrealism to the genre. Featuring the anarchic English literature don Gervase Fen, the mystery gets under way when a visiting poet finds a dead body in a toyshop in the middle of the night. By morning, it's been transformed into a grocery store. Written with wit and brio, this is a clever, energetic romp that still entertains." Volume 2 also currently available; the set would make a lovely gift for someone looking for a new author to enjoy or an amusing British detective series.
