A vintage murder mystery. Wenham & Geraldine are a long-established and very well respected publishing firm, so when a printer's proof is sabotaged and libellous passages are mysteriously reinstated, they call in private detective Nigel Strangeways.

The Nicholas Blake books are something quite by themselves in English detective fiction" (Elizabeth Bowen). His plots are ingenious" (Times Literary Supplement). A master of detective fiction" (Daily Telegraph). I enjoyed this story and had no idea whodunnit until close to the end. I've only just discovered Nicholas Blake, so I have lots of his work to catch up on. Being a fan of the Allingham, Marsh and Sayers ilk, this is a good thing.
Another ok Blake-good on publishing and poetry; plot a bit slapdash and of course the nasal spray is poisoned; Claire the best thing about the book. Blake seems a little tired of Nigel.
