Reader's note

This charming little pocket-sized book is a well-loved classic by Michael Innes. The setting is a grass parody. The house party is in the country house with its lawns and terraces… and the nightingales singing in the corpse on the hill. But the hostess is a dying woman and her guests have expectations; the town is lapping up to the village; you can hear the traffic on the arterial road in between the nightingales’ songs. And those nightingales. They provide Appleybe with the thread which leads to the heart of perhaps the most unpleasant tangle of events in his whole career. Just one of the many classic, collectible, vintage books available on our online used bookstore.
