This is book is so good because it feels so old. All the quotations fall just so, and there are very few false notes to be detected. That's important because the book is set amongst some of the British literary luminaries of the early 20th century Lewis, Tolkien, Williams, Christie...and they all play a fairly integral part in the plot. It's like, what if you put "National Treasure", CS Lewis, Michael Card, and PD James in a blender!! Think Da Vinci Code excitement, without the slovenly intellectual drivel that Dan Brown tries to pass off as scholarship. It does end a tad abruptly, but I say bravo on this 1st try at using the Inklings as Crime Solving Mystery Team.
