Overview

Eccentric Oxford professor Gervase Fen remains as maddeningly childish as ever, still deliciously fond of his own wit and erudition. He's equally fond of amateur sleuthing, so the murder of the cathedral organist is a cause for glee. Could the fellow have fallen afoul of a nest of German spies or of the local coven of witches, ominously rumored to have been practicing since the 17th century? Tracking down the answer pleases Fen immensely—only the reader will have a better time.

Holy Disorders 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This was an enjoyable book overall with good plot twists. Many esoteric references and somewhat archaic language made the book an interesting change from more modern mysteries. The eccentric Gervase Fen is a little much but his church musician counterpart is more sympathetic, and the story is told from Geoffrey's point of view. Would recommend this book to the British mystery lover, who might also enjoy Edmund Crispin's Love Lies Bleeding (I liked that one better,actually).
