The Bad Quarto Summary

The Bad Quarto: Imogen Quy Book 4 by Jill Paton Walsh

Another foolhardy Cambridge college-climber has died attempting Harding's Folly. This time it's John Talentire, one of the brightest young dons at St Agatha's, and the verdict is accident, compounded by idiocy. But Imogen Quy - her name rhymes with 'why' - can't help wondering how such a clever young man died so stupidly. And when a wildly eccentric production of "Hamlet" is interrupted by a murder accusation, Imogen has to look into it, uncovering more crimes than she expected...

The Bad Quarto Reviews

"* 'An entertaining read' - Sunday Times * 'A jewel in the traditional English detective mode... Ms. Morse has arrived' - Observer * 'Imogen Quy positively sparkles on the page as an amateur sleuth.' - Sunday Express * 'In Imogen Quy, the author has created an admirable detective heroine, as unabashed as she is unaffected.' - Times Literary Supplement * 'Paton Walsh plots deftly and writes intelligently... Sayers' many fans will be delighted.' - Andrew Taylor, Independent * 'Jill Paton Walsh demonstrates that the traditional ingredients of the woman sleuth, the academic background and a clever puzzle are still capable of being arranged into an entertaining and stimulating crime novel.' - Manchester Evening News"
