Baker & Taylor Chief Inspector Barnaby and his faithful sidekick, Sergeant Troy, investigate doings at an exotic New Age commune and find themselves in a whirlpool of murder and mistaken identities
Blackwell North Amer When the charming Master of a New Age commune is quite prematurely transported into the Other World - right in the middle of a regression - a riotous tale of murder most bizarre and romance most improbable takes off. It's up to the always down-to-earth Chief Inspector Barnaby and the thorough but vulnerable Sergeant Troy to sort through the tangled relationships and passions intertwining this most unlikely family of spiritual disciples. Among the suspects are a lovely runaway heiress, her blustering, furious, runaway dad, a duplicitous pair of disciples, a handsome young man whose credentials are clearly not all that they should be, and a poor wretch of a fellow hardly capable of uttering a word. With a story that is part P. G. Wodehouse, part Martha Grimes, and always inimitably Caroline Graham, this is a classic tale of mistaken identities, surprising chicanery, and murder most disturbing. Death in Disguise is the third in the widely acclaimed Chief Inspector Barnaby series from one of England's most charming authors. Steeped in Graham's wickedly funny prose, spiced with a devilishly intricate murder or three, and sustained throughout by a crew of evil tycoons, village gossips, and a delightfully traditional sleuth, Death in Disguise is a sure bet for both armchair detectives and literate crime aficionados.
