Summary

Edward Trencom has bumbled through life, relying on his trusty nose to turn the family cheese shop into the most celebrated fromagerie in England. But his world is turned upside down when he stumbles across a crate of family papers.

To his horror, Edward discovers that nine previous generations of his family have come to sticky ends because of their noses. When he investigates further, Edward finds himself caught up in a Byzantine riddle to which there is no obvious answer...

Giles Milton's deliciously comic debut novel is a mouth-watering blend of Louis de Bernieres, Tom Sharpe, and P. G. Wodehouse with every word permeated by the pungent odour of cheese.

Really not sure

Bought this as a friend had enjoyed the book....when she was a lot younger. I kept waiting for a bit more intrigue...it didn’t happen for me. I just felt it jumped about too much and there was never enough meat to each character. Narration was fine. The plot didn’t really have me engaged. A good plot will hold me sitting in the car just to hear a little bit more. I had no problem leaving this behind, it took quite some time to finish the book. 😏

Eward Trencom's Nose.

I don't usually like flashback style books but this one
with its reversal of historical events managed to
keep my interest. A very well writen book.
