A very nice copy. ;Omnibus edition with three mysteries (originally published in 1944, 1945, and 1946) featuring Gervase Fen, Oxford don, literary critic, and sleuth. 'The Case of the Gilded Fly' is the first book in the series. 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.
