Description - The Anglo-Irish Murders by Ruth Dudley Edwards

Praise for Ruth Dudley Edwards..."No one brings down the temple with more outrageous wit and style than Ruth Dudley Edwards." -Marilyn Stasio, New York Times "A textbook on how to puncture pomposity and bigotry. Should be required reading in government circles everywhere." -The Daily Telegraph (UK) of The Anglo-Irish Murders Foolishly, the British and Irish governments have chosen the tactless and impatient Baroness Troutbeck to chair a conference on Anglo-Irish cultural sensitivities. She instantly press-gangs Robert Amiss, her young friend and reluctant accomplice, into becoming conference organizer. It is a conference to remember in more ways than one. When a delegate plummets off the battlements, no one, not even the authorities, can decide whether it was by accident or design. The next death poses the same prob-lem and causes warring factions to accuse each other of murder even as the politicians are busily trying to brush everything under the carpet in the name of peace. Dr. Ruth Dudley Edwards, born and brought up in Dublin, Ireland, now lives in England, where she uses her knowledge of the British establishment in her satirical crime novels. Targets so far have included the civil service, gentlemen's clubs, Cambridge colleges, the House of Lords, the Church of England, publishing, literary prizes, and-always-political correctness. www.ruthdudleyedwards.co.uk
