A PARLIAMENT OF OWLS

Mr. Buchanan's first took place in a KKK-Kentucky town where there was A Murder of Crows. This is set in a New England village where there are equally hardhatted, fatheaded American Defenders and roast owls and a Mr. Bramin, leader of the Defenders, and Ben Shock, homicide (Buchanan has a happy faculty for names). The New York Times before its mystery arbiter was deposed found that ""Seldom has a dash of sparkling water been more welcome to the parched throat of tough private-eyedom,"" but we're more inclined to agree with Shock who feels as if he had been ""emersed (sic) in a filthier muck than the harbor mud.
