Robert Amiss is persuaded by his friend Detective Sergeant Pooley of the CID to take a job as a waiter in Ffeatherstonehaugh’s (pronounced Fanshaw’s), a gentlemen’s club in St James’, London. 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. Amiss finds himself in a bizarre caricature of a club, run by and for debauched geriatrics, with skeletons rattling in every cupboard. Why are there so few members? How are they financed? Will Amiss keep his job despite the enmity of the ferocious, snuff-covered Colonel Fagg? More importantly, will he solve the crime before someone else dies?Subject(s): Great Britain | Amiss, Robert (Fictitious character) | Civil service | Men--Societies and clubs | EnglandOriginal Publisher: US, Poisoned Pen PressLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781615950577
