Description

'A perfect blend of literature, mystery and love . . . and side-splitting humour' Lucy Robinson, author of The Greatest Love Story of All Time Atticus Craftsman never travels without a supply of Earl Grey and a favourite book. So when he is sent to shut down a failing literary magazine in Madrid, he packs both. A short Spanish jaunt later, he'll be back in Kent, cup of tea and smoked-salmon sandwich in hand. But the five ladies who run the magazine have other ideas. They'll do anything to keep the jobs they love - even if it involves hoodwinking Atticus with flashing eyes, the ghosts of literature past and a winding journey into the heart of Andalucia. With not the most efficient of detectives in pursuit, it's only a matter of time before Atticus Craftsman either falls in love, disappears completely or - worst of all - runs out of Earl Grey. Crime comedy, love story and literary adventure all at once, The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman is fiendishly fun and delightfully different. 'A delightfully funny literary adventure' Choice Magazine 'What a fabulous read! Written with verve and wit' Frances Mayes, author of bestselling Under the Tuscan Sunshow more
