The Big Over Easy
It's Easter in Reading — a bad time for eggs — and no one can remember the last sunny day. Ovoid D-class nursery celebrity Humpty Stuyvesant Van Dumpty III, minor baronet, ex-convict and former millionaire philanthropist is found shattered to death beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. Evidence points to his ex-wife who has met with an accident down at the Yummy-Time biscuit factory.
But Detective Inspector Jack Spratt and his assistant Mary Nary remain unconvinced, a sentiment not shared by their superiors at the Reading Police Department, who are still smarting ver their failure to convict the Three Pigs of murdering Mr Wolff. Before long Jack and Mary find themselves grappling with a sinister plot involving cross-border money laundering, bullion smuggling, problems with beanstalks, titans seeking asylum and the cut and thrust world of international chiropody.
