One was Chief Inspector Henry Hall, an elitist cop of the old school, who was driving in one direction only - to the top. It was his job. His territory. The other was Peter Maxwell - "Mad Max" - widower, film buff, golden-hearted cynic, and bow-tied, eccentric teacher under suspension and suspicion. Maxwell didn't have to become involved at all.

    2. Having read some of the later Maxwell books, I made a determined effort to get to the beginning of how it all began and am glad I did.'Mad Max' Maxwell history teacher, amateur sleuth, film buff and champion of fair play is a hero for all seasons. His animosity for red tape and jobsworths makes him so likeable and you feel yourself cheering for every victory he scores.Also an excellent plot, if you are looking for something different give this ago.

    3. One of the first Maxwell books ive read. He's a history teacher who ends up being an amateur sleuth. Metrinich his cat is like the embodiment of his names sake. He calls his bicycle after a white battle horse. Maxwell books are full of character.

    4. Very easy to read. As a teacher I enjoyed the references to daily teaching life and the politics of the staff room.

    5. In a minor public school (i.e. private school) in England, schoolteacher Maxwell seeks a student's murderer. Good characterization is a plus in this academic mystery.

    6. School teacher turns amateur sleuth in this entertaining crime story. Humour and intrigue cleverly mixed.
