Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde
Book DescriptionJasper Fforde's bestselling Thursday Next series has delighted readers of every genre with its literary derring-do and brilliant flights of fancy. In The Big Over Easy, Fforde takes a break from classic literature and tumbles into the seedy underbelly of nursery crime. Meet Inspector Jack Spratt, family man and head of the Nursery Crime Division. He's investigating the murder of ovoid D-class nursery celebrity Humpty Dumpty, found shattered to death beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. Yes, the big egg is down, and all those brittle pieces sitting in the morgue point to foul play.Read Jasper Fforde's posts in the Penguin Blog

Book Review: Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde - Reviewed by CloggieA (08 Jul 2012)
The Big Over Easy is the first in the Nursery Crime series by Jasper Fforde and, while it was not published until 2005, it was actually written in 1994, well before his highly successful Thursday Next series. It is a reworking of his first written novel which was initially titled “Who Killed Humpty Dumpty”, and is set in a similar alternative universe to the Thursday Next novels; the main characters, DI Jack Spratt, DS Mary Mary, Dr. Gladys Singh and others appear in “The Well of Lost Plots”. Spratt’s boss, Superintendent Briggs tells DS Mary, when she transfers from Basingstoke to Reading Division, hoping to work with the legendary DCI Friedland Chymes: “Modern policing isn’t about catching criminals, Mary. It’s about good copy and ensuring cases can be made into top-notch documentaries on the telly.” (not too much of a stretch from real life….). To her disappointment, Mary is assigned to assist DI Jack Spratt in the Nursery Crime Division...
