Holy Disorders takes Oxford don and part-time detective Gervase Fen to the town of Tolnbridge, where he is happily bounding around with a butterfly net until the cathedral organist is murdered, giving Fen the chance to play sleuth.

The man didn't have an enemy in the world, and even his music was inoffensive: could he have fallen afoul of a nest of German spies or of the local coven of witches, ominously rumoured to have been practising since the 17th century? Download and start listening now!

    " Good but not great. Lots and lots of humor, most of it literary, including a hilarious scene involving a raven. The mystery part is just okay, the main tec, Gervaise Fen, a precious little pain in the neck. The narrator is a great character, though; well-developed and not the ordinary doltish sidekick proving the great man's perspicuity. Worth a read if you like Golden Age mysteries. "

    " Gervase Fen is one of those literary characters that I think one either likes to meet again can hardly stomach. Personally, I like the character and the mysteries he gets involved with - at least so far, with this being only the third Edmund Crispin story I've read so far. Fen is certainly perceptive, but he's a quirky fellow, full of self esteem in many ways like Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. I thought in this story the enemy spy aspect was a bit of a stretch, but nevertheless, it was all a good tale full of well-portrayed characters and I'll be looking to get more Fen novels. "

    " A hoot, this. Supposedly not the best of the series, but good fun nevertheless. Think this may be the first detective story I've read that sent me to the dictionary, not once but several times. The spoof on The Raven cracked up me and had me dig out Poe to read that. Will look for more of this series. "

    " I am loving Gervase Fen (I think maybe my favorite detective behind Poirot--sorry, Lord Peter) and the sudden moments of hilarity that Crispin throws into an otherwise tense and puzzling whodunit. Extremely enjoyable. "
