The Herring-Seller's Apprentice based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
He might write nearly as well as L.C. Tyler. I've recently finished "The Herring Seller's Apprentice" -- it is deliciously snarky, laugh-out-loud funny and so witty, you want to get on the phone and invite Tyler to your next cocktail party, the one Cole Porter and Ogden Nash have promised to attend. All that, and I found myself heart-touched by his funny, quirky characters. I think Tyler has only just been available in the U.S., which means the Brits are keeping a lot of the really good stuff to themselves. If you like brilliant wordplay and devilish mysteries, you can't go wrong with "The Herring Seller's Apprentice."
