When there are crimes to be covered up, mysteries to be wrapped in enigmas, or a murderer to be liquidated, there is only one man who can be trusted with the task: Felix Culpepper, tutor in Classics at St Wygefortis' College, Cambridge, and assassin-at-large for the British Establishment.

Reader Comments

Look no further for the perfect summer read. Outlandishly funny.
Thrills to make you shiver, hilarity to split your sides. Read it!
The world of letters presently has far too few tutors in Greats at St Wygefortis' College, Cambridge, or in fact assassins-at-large for HMG. That it has now gained one of both can only be regarded as an excellent application of what Culpepper himself doubtless would call the omnibusses-all-at-once rule.
A rollercoaster read.
Great book, really enjoyed.....happy to vote and good luck
A twisted, amazing tale from a talented author.
A clear winner, in my book! The prose is refined and elegant, and funny. The characters are rich and real. A great literary experience. The book deserves the highest recognition
How often do you find a comic hero who infuriates you, grosses you out, and makes you laugh until you fall down? Major's Culpepper is marvelous and malign.
Brilliantly witty, extraordinary ideas delivered in sumptuous sentences. Completely original.
A book of immense creativity and wit. A delightful waltz through a dark but enjoyable world created by Richard Major.
A cracking read with an amazingly original comic premise
Besides suspense, wry giggles, linguistic pleasure and lashings of bombast each of Culpepper's cases delivers multiple tales: good value on every front.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to other works by this talented author!
Fabulous must read!
Witty, unique, and refreshing. Lots of laughs!
Brilliantly written!
It's dazzling!
By the far the best book of the competition
Mr.Major has written a triumph of a book. Engaging, multifaceted, a joy to read.
Excellent Book
Brilliant Book
Wit and brio!
Superbly languaged, funny and fascinating.
No question that Major is the greatest comic novelist in English since Evelyn Waugh. I laughed, I cried. Bring on the sequel!
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a heady cocktail of plot and pastiche, very elegantly put together, with gripping stories and hilarious jokes (ranging from the literary to the ludicrous). Felix Culpepper is deplorably louche, but very entertaining. I laughed so much I dropped the book, so the message has to be ‘hold on tight for a roller coaster read.’
Wit, brilliance and wonderment lurk around every corner!
Hoorah for an intelligent new sleuth with the added bonus of mirth and fun. Is the 'proper' job Richard Major has been searching for? Looks like it to me!
Engagingly devious: H. H. Munro ravished by Simon Raven.
Richard Major is an incredible talent - can't wait to read more!
This book is the love child of _The Name of The Rose_ and _Lucky Jim_. Brilliant, glittering, fun, addictive.
Excellent and captiviting book!
What a ride! One of the most unique, scary and funny reads ever. Worth a second trip.
