When poet Richard Cadogan decides to spend his holidays in Oxford after a disagreement with his greedy publisher, he can't possibly imagine that the first thing he ll find there will be the corpse of a woman on the floor of a toy shop. Things only get stranger when he escorts police back to the scene of the crime, only to discover that the toy shop has disappeared and that it has been replaced by a grocery store. Cadogan enlists the help of English professor and amateur detective Gervase Fen, and the bookish duo face an impossible murder, clues in the form of an absurd poem, and wild persecutions through the city all of which make for a testament to the unusual.
