Inhaltsangabe

'It looks like he died from injuries sustained during a fall....' Best-selling author Jasper Fforde begins an effervescent new series. 

It's Easter in Reading - a bad time for eggs - and no one can remember the last sunny day. Humpty Dumpty, well-known nursery favourite, large egg, ex-convict and former millionaire philanthropist, is found shattered beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. 

Following the pathologist's careful reconstruction of Humpty's shell, Detective Inspector Jack Spratt and his Sergeant, Mary Mary, are soon grappling with a sinister plot involving cross-border money laundering, the illegal Bearnaise sauce market, corporate politics and the cut and thrust world of international chiropody. 

As Jack and Mary stumble around the streets of Reading in Jack's lime green Austin Allegro, the clues pile up, but Jack has his own problems to deal with. And on top of everything else, the JellyMan is coming to town....

It grows on you like a beanstalk

It took me a while to get into the story, but I ended up becoming a fan of the NCD.

Typically Fforde.

It's absurd, funny and full of references of which I sadly understand only half being non-british. Also it lifts the mystery of what becomes of Cavesham Heights after Thursday Next, Lola and Randolf turn it into a sanctuary fur nursery rhyme characters in The Well of Lost Plots. So also full of insider jokes for Fforde-fans.
I very much enjoyed it. Bravo!
