The Glimpses of the Moon

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Death and decapitation seem to go hand in hand in the Devon village of Aller. When the first victim's head is sent floating down the river, the village's rural calm is shattered. Soon the corpses are multiplying, and the entire community is involved in the hunt for the murderer. Whilst many chase false trails, it is left to Gervase Fen, Oxford don and amateur criminologist, to uncover the sordid truth.

Equal parts compelling, witty and ingenuous, this novel is a classic example of great British detective fiction.

First published in 1977, Glimpses of the Moon was Edmund Crispin's ninth and final novel.

Customer Reviews

Fentastic

This is enjoyable, classic English detective fiction, one of the last flourishes of the Golden age. The crimes and the detection are satisfying and the humour is robust enough to amuse anyone not familiar with the intellectual interests of Gervaise Fen or Edmund Crispin. A reader familiar with novelists of the Fifties and Sixties will find extra delights. It is quite dated now, but that is true of much classic detective writings, even so this reviewer was bemused to find that familiar territory of his youth has become dated.
Read and enjoy
