The partners of the firm of 'Crabbe and Crabbe: Private
Investigators' have unusual qualifications for detectives. Both in
their twenties, Melpomene is a social anthropologist, and Alexander
is a solicitor, a combination that brings fresh approaches to a
sometimes jaded profession, while benefitting from effective
collaboration with police colleagues in various parts of England,
and, occasionally, even France and, recently, Denmark. This, their
latest case, starts out with an apparently minor incident of art
fraud, but then takes in illegal auction rings, smuggling,
intimidation, assault, kidnapping and several murders, instigated
by a mysterious mastermind from behind the scenes, until he emerges
and resorts to an act of desperation. Of course, Mel and Alex, with
help from the English, French and Danish police forces, ultimately
prevail, bring the guilty to justice, tie up most of the loose
ends, and move on to their next case.
