  • Herring on the Nile by L. C. Tyler
    Herring on the Nile (English, Paperback)

    Ahilarious parody of Agatha Christie and fourth in a series nominated for two Edgar awards. Ethelred Tressider's career is not, let's face it, what one might call glittering. This is not surprising: Ethelred lost any real interest in writing mystery novels many years ago, and his audience has never been truly excited about reading them. And yet the bills must be paid. In a desperate effort to revive his imagination, Ethelred books a cruise down the Nile?cradle of civilization, ancient royal rivalries, etc. Well, it worked for Agatha Christie.

  • The Herring in the Library by L. C. Tyler
    The Herring in the Library (English, Paperback)

    Ethelred Tressider, the mediocre mystery author we first met in The Herring Seller's Apprentice and Ten Little Herrings, and his bossy, chocolate-loving agent, Elsie, are to dine with Ethelred's old friend, Sir Robert (known to his friends as Shagger) and Lady Muntham. Elsie doesn't think much of her hosts, but she is very much interested in figuring out who killed Sir Robert once he turns up dead in his locked library. A delightful parody of the country house mystery.
