This is the first book I have read by the prolific Michael Innes, the pseudonym for an Oxford professor who wrote many, more learned works under his own name. This will certainly not be the last Innes book I read. Published in 1942, while the author appears to have been teaching in Australia, this is one of the most peculiar mysteries I have read-if, indeed, you want to call it a mystery at all.
The river widened, but was filled with treacherous shoals; they kept now to mid-channel, and sometimes there was a water horizon on either bow.
Michael Innes naked and lean – and once so many canoes that Mr Wine had a case of rifles brought on deck. But it was an uneventful voyage.
The Daffodil Affair was first published in 1942. I want very much to like Michael Innes books, but I get stuck in his long sentences. His writing is dense, something I need quiet and time to navigate. Light after light goes out, including two luminaries from Scotland Yard. In the midst of the Blitz, a house in Bloomsbury disappears. I’ve never read this one, but I think I’ll give it a try.

The Daffodil Affair isn’t a typical detective novel either
The Daffodil Affair isn’t a typical detective novel either. Published two years after The Secret Vanguard, in 1942, the war is an influence on this novel too, but I won’t say much more about that as I would be risking giving away too much of the plot. In The Daffodil Affair, Appleby and his colleague Hudspith are investigating three separate mysteries, none of which are the sort of thing you would expect two Scotland Yard detectives to become involved in. First, there is the theft of Daffodil, an extraordinary horse who seems able to count and to read minds.
