LANDSCAPE WITH DEAD DONS

The vandalism and destruction of priceless literature takes Autumn of Scotland Yard to Oxford, its colleges and its library, Bodleian, to protect The Book of the Lion by Chaucer, recently discovered. The murders of the master of Warlock, and its Chaplain help to confuse as does the discovery of traffic in pornography while a race of naked dons winds up Autumn's search. Erudite and pedantic, as well as undergraduate, humor light up the donnish, cloisters and line this up for more lofty dome sleuthing.
