Book description
The imminent publication in a limited edition of a scandalously anti-Semitic book - The Open-Bellied Mountain - by the printing house of Saxant and Senss, find the author of the inflammatory work - Fortinbras Carn - and his closest relatives receiving disturbingly threatening letters; threats that soon have to be taken deadly seriously when the author's wife is killed in mysterious circumstances.

Mrs. Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley is soon drawn into a mystery as bizarre and as baffling as any that she has ever encountered during her long and illustrious career and, ably assisted by her resolute and energetic nephew Carey, and by the young and enterprising solicitor to the author's family - Mr Justin Bassin - she finds herself battling Nazis, nudists and gun-toting motor-cyclists in equal number; unmasking the reasons behind a sudden craze for wearing false beards; and the origin of several dismembered human body parts, which begin to appear in a variety of increasingly peculiar locations; before eventually arriving at the case's unexpected and surreal climax.
