Shelves: favorites, mysteries
This book is hysterically funny, and I can't understand why so few people have read it. It's a hilarious spoof of British mysteries, and I recommend it to everyone who likes PBS' Mystery! series. Inspector Dover and his sidekick are like a deranged Inspector Morse and co. Great book!
