Robert Amiss is persuaded by his friend Detective Sergeant Pooley of the CID to take a job as a waiter in ffeatherstonehaughs (pronounced Fanshaws), a gentlemens club in St James. The club secretary has allegedly jumped to his death from the gallery of this imposing building. Against most of the evidence, Pooley believes he was murdered.

Will Amiss keep his job despite the enmity of the ferocious, snuff-covered Colonel Fagg?… (more)

murder in gentleman's club
  ritaer | Jul 7, 2021 |
I love Robert Amiss stories, especially when the Baroness Trout isn't overpowering, or even present. This very funny tale of murder at one those fabled British men's clubs will make even the most staid reader laugh aloud. The characters are endearing and actually show a bit of development. Most highly recommended. ( )
