Swan song by Edmund Crispin( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This playful whodunit featuring an Oxford don and a permanently silenced opera singer is "a spendidly intricate and superior locked-room mystery" (The New York Times). When an opera company gathers in Oxford for the first postwar production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger, its happiness is soon soured by the discovery that the unpleasant Edwin Shorthouse will be singing a leading role. Nearly everyone involved has reason to loathe Shorthouse, but who amongst them has the fiendish ingenuity to kill him in his own locked dressing room' In the course of this entertaining adventure, eccentric Oxford professor and amateur sleuth Gervase Fen has to unravel two murders, cope with the unpredictability of the artistic temperament, and attempt to encourage the course of true love. "One of the last exponents of the classical English detective story ... elegant, literate, and funny." -The Times of London "[Crispin's] books are fast, fun and smart, their hero charming, frivolous, brilliant and badly behaved." -New Review
