Read full description of the books:
Kann eine Leiche einen Mord begehen? Gervase Fen ist ratlos – er hat nichts als zwei Todesfälle, die miteinander verbunden zu sein scheinen. Da ist der aufgedunsene Leichnam von Edwin Shorthouse, dem meistgehassten Mitglied des Oxforder Opernensembles: begabt, aber dem Gin ergeben. Der zweite Tote ist ein junger Chorsänger und aufstrebender Opernkomponist, der vor zwei Tagen seine Hochzeit gefeiert hat. Was als Opera buffa beginnt, wird zur Opera seria.

Read information about the authorEdmund Crispin was the pseudonym of (Robert) Bruce Montgomery (1921-1978). His first crime novel and musical composition were both accepted for publication while he was still an undergraduate at Oxford. After a brief spell of teaching, he became a full-time writer and composer (particularly of film music. He wrote the music for six of the Carry On films. But he was also well known for his concert and church music). He also edited science fiction anthologies, and became a regular crime fiction reviewer for The Sunday Times. His friends included Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis and Agatha Christie.
He had always been a heavy drinker and, unfortunately, there was a long gap in his writing during a time when he was suffering from alcohol problems. Otherwise he enjoyed a quiet life (enlivened by music, reading, church-going and bridge) in Totnes, a quiet corner of Devon, where he resisted all attempts to develop or exploit the district, visiting London as little as possible. He moved to a new house he had built at Week, a hamlet near Dartington, in 1964, then, late in life, married his secretary Ann in 1976, just two years before he died from alcohol related problems. His music was composed using his real name, Bruce Montgomery.
N.B. A biography by David Whittle, Bruce Montgomery/Edmund Crispin: A Life in Music and Books (ISBN 10: 0754634434) was published in June 2007.
