0 5 Author: Michael Innes. Over a period of twenty years, a series of highly elaborate art hoaxes have been perpetrated at carefully time intervals, and in each case, the victim has a very good reason for keeping quiet. Inspector Appleby's interest is kindled by an amusing dinner-party anecdote - when he enlists the help of his wife and son, the ensuing investigation is truly a family affair.
This is one of Innes's most challenging books. I won't describe more of the plot, which turns largely from mystery to suspense by the final section of the book. It's among his most outrageously fantastic stories and yet its focus is surely on a much more absolute evil than casual murder or garden-variety vice. In wartime, and certain other times of dire trouble, we gradually lose our grip on reality as the fantastic and the horrific become commonplace. What I will touch upon is what makes this book so interesting and so much fun-at least for this reader-a survey of internet opinion turns up a wide variety of reactions.
