The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin.
Arriving late at night for a holiday in Oxford, the poet Richard Cadogan stumbles across the body of a dead woman in a toyshop. When he returns with the police, the toyshop is a grocery store and there is no sign of the corpse. Cadogan joins forces with the eccentric Professor Gervase Fen to solve the mystery. Battling with limerick clues, an unusual will, an impossible murder and disappearing evidence, the bookish duo rampage through the university town determined to find answers. Crispin's most famous novel, The Moving Toyshop is fast-paced, funny and full of entertaining literary puzzles.

Since it didn't win I'm going to nominate Casino Royale again, by Ian Fleming. It's the first book in the James Bond series. I've only read a couple of the books, but so far, they are very different from the movies. Sometimes the only thing the movie has in common with the book is the title.
