Aird, Catherine.              A Going Concern

Pan 0-330-33038-1 1994, 1st thus. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... Reading crease. ... Intricate, witty and thoroughly delightful, Aird's case for Chief Inspector C. D. Sloan and Constable Crosby probes a death with roots in WW II biochemical research. Eccentric, elderly Octavia Garamond has left a will directing that the police be present at her funeral and that her doctor examine her body very closely after her death. These odd requests perplex those involved, notably the deceased's only known survivor, Amelia Kennerly, who is named her great-aunt's sole executor. Further questions are raised when Octavia's home at the Grange, Grand Primer, Calleshire, is thoroughly tossed right after her death; when the local parson expresses some reluctance to preside at the funeral; and when two chemical companies engaged in a takeover battle seem somehow connected to Garamond's demise, which is eventually attributed to a poison worthy of Agatha Christie. As Sloan tracks a money angle, Amelia traces a child born out of wedlock in 1940. In the end, these and related mysteries are handsomely resolved and Aunt Octavia turns out to have been mad only "north-north-west" and fully capable of knowing "a hawk from a handsaw" right unto her end. Peopled with a cast that aptly and frequently quotes Shakespeare, this tale is a literate, surprising treat. ... Pseudonym of Kinn Hamilton McIntosh.

Sphere 0-7221-2979-3 1980. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... For fifty years after Dr Watson's death, a packet of papers, written by the doctor himself, lay hidden in a locked box.

The detective, of course, was the great Sherlock Holmes - but why was the report kept hidden for so long? This is the story that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle never wrote.

Huxley, Aldous.              Brave New World Revisited

Perennial 0-06-080023-2 1979, 19th printing. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... When the novel Brave New World first appeared in 1932, its shocking analysis of a scientific dictatorship seemed a projection into the remote future. Here, in one of the most important and fascinating books of his career, Aldous Huxley uses his tremendous knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with his prophetic fantasy. He scrutinizes threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion, and explains why we have found it virtually impossible to avoid them. Brave New World Revisited is a trenchant plea that humankind should educate itself for freedom before it is too late.
