BOOK REVIEW

THE RIVERSIDE VILLAS MURDER by Kingsley Amis
Released: Sept. 1, 1973

"Not much of a game, as we indicated (a bloodied victim walks through the windows of Peter's house to lie fallen cold and dead) — not as seductive as his ghost story The Green Man — but a bit of cheerful nostalgia for those who mourn the demise of the red herring on the garden path."
Kingsley Amis, that literary traveling man, has written about the classical detective story which he admires (particularly John Dickson Carr's wheezy Dr. Fell) and now he has emulated the form which succeeds far better as a send-up than a story — that is a crime story since these elements, particularly the denouement, are sheer "kerfuffle."
