The scene is London, England, in the mid-nineteen twenties. Private detectives Melpomene and Alex are asked to investigate problems at a London stock-broking firm. Soon it becomes clear that certain officers of a prominent embassy are also involved in extensive illegal money transfers with European countries financing the arms and drug-running trades. Before long there have been killings and Crabbe and Crabbe are warned off by anonymous letters and telephone calls - of course they are not daunted and the guilty are brought to account, with the cooperation of the authorities.

Melpomene and Alex Crabbe investigate what appear to be dubious practices at a new university.

With the aid of a group of graduate students and honest staff, they bring the perpetrators to book.

Geoffrey Foster
R283 Discovery Miles 2 830 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

A further exploit of the Crabbe and Crabbe detective agency, set in 1920s England. The partners of the firm 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, benefitting from collaboration with police colleagues in London. This, their latest case, begins with an approach from a doctor, concerned about unexplained happenings at his hospital. The Crabbes begin following up some of his enquiries and find evidence of serious difficulties and wrongdoing by certain pharmaceutical suppliers, with consequences that reach further than the hospital.

R284 Discovery Miles 2 840 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The partners 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, benefitting from collaboration with police colleagues in London. This, their latest case, begins innocuously enough when a young friend is concerned that Janice, her fourteen-year old school friend, is the target of idle gossip accusing her diplomat father of misconduct, and she asks Melpomene and Alex to help. In investigating further, it soon becomes apparent that there are indeed serious undercurrents going on behind the work of the London embassy of a small Caribbean state, involving murder and kidnapping. Of course, Crabbe and Crabbe uncover the culprits and bring them to justice.

R283 Discovery Miles 2 830 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

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.

The partners of the firm of 'Crabbe and Crabbe: Private Investigators' have unusual qualifications for detectives.

This, their latest case, starts out with an apparently minor incident of industrial sabotage, but inexorably extends to intimidation, assault, kidnapping and several types of murder, all instigated by a spiteful unscrupulous mastermind working at a high level in the textiles industry. Of course, Mel and Alex ultimately prevail, bring the guilty to justice, tie up almost all the loose ends, and move on to their next case.

A further account, set in the Middle Ages in England and parts of Europe, of some of the characters that may have already been met in "Vincent the Beeman" and other books in the series.

After celebrating with banquets and grand balls, and receiving magnificent presents, she sets off with her dearest friend, Vincent, to visit the castle of Schloss Kirschbaum in Hesse, the home of the twins Euphemia and Ruprecht. A number of adventures transpire, both in Hesse, at that time an independent German country, and back in England. By the use of their magical gifts, the friends defeat and overcome criminals of various kinds as well as an evil witch. In the end they all celebrate one wedding and foretell another.

They visit the twins in their castle, Schloss Kirschbaum, in Hesse, and rescue Clotilda Gunther from robbers who are after her valuable silverware. They present the twins' aunt with a spinet, since her hearing is no longer good enough for her to enjoy playing the clavichord. Vincent becomes enthralled with honeybees, and takes up bee-keeping as his lifetime enthusiasm.
