THE RIVERSIDE VILLAS MURDER was his stab at the classic early twentieth-century detective novel; the central hero detective figures of it, the bachelor aesthete Colonel Menton and the teenage Peter Furneaux, might well have gone on to figure in a whole series of murder mysteries set in the s (though somehow it seems better they did not)/5(10).

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.".

What was a suspected student prank is followed by murder. At first it is impossible to see the connection, but the eccentric Colonel Manton does. With Peter's help the Colonel unravels a mystery that strikes fear into the heart of a genteel suburban neighbourhood and gives Peter rather more excitement than he bargained for at the tennis club.

This second Amis mystery, originally published as a serial in London's Sunday Times, has little in common with the classic plotting and sophisticated charm of Villas.
