Felix Day, author of the Constantine Sphinx mysteries, and Leonard Fuller, author of the Inspector Fez mysteries, are bitter rivals and the best of enemies. Both happen to present when a notorious author of roman à clef is shot by an invisible assailant during a signing at historic Marlborough Bookstore.
Even if they weren't both suspects, it's the perfect opportunity to match wits and sleuthing skills.
If only the murderer was equally amused.

"Sweet historical mystery"
A cosy story of the post-war English author/detective variety. It's hard to judge the book itself, though I generally love Lanyon's work. The trouble is that each chapter is told from the perspective of one of two protagonists and because the narrator doesn't differentiate between them in voice, I was constantly confused about which one was speaking. Most of the other characters sounded like Jimmy Stewart, which was also confusing. I listened over 2 days but had to replay the last chapter and I'm still not sure who was who.
