Crime fiction at its quirkiest and best. Holy Disorders takes Oxford don and part time detective Gervase Fen to the town of Tolnbridge, where he is happily bounding around with a butterfly net until the cathedral organist is murdered, giving Fen the chance to play sleuth. Anorexia mirabilis, also known as holy anorexia or inedia prodigiosa or colloquially as fasting girls, is an eating disorder, similar to that of anorexia nervosa, that was common, but not restricted to the Middle Ages in Europe, largely affecting Catholic nuns and religious women.

Holy Disorders Gervase Fen Mystery, Book 2 Holy Disorders takes Oxford don and part time detective Gervase Fen to the town of Tolnbridge, where he is happily bounding around with a butterfly net until the cathedral organist is murdered, giving Fen the chance to play sleuth. The man didn't have an enemy in the world, and even his music was. Holy Cross Services makes it its goals to help those in need with substance abuse and co-occuring mental health disorders. We give people hope.

Walker & Co. continues its laudable reprintings of the long-out-of-print works of the late English-mystery master, whose witty cases all feature Gervase Fen, a most un-donnish Oxford prof of English literature. This outing, written when Crispin (real name—Robert Bruce Montgomery) was 24, and published in the U.S. by Lippincott in , involves the murder of a cathedral organist. Author of Obsequies At Oxford, continues the highbrow investigations of Gervase Fen, as he mocks and means through two murders, demonology, and enemy broadcasting. Fen leads the local police about, but is forced to step aside when the Yard takes over, and proceeds on his own to run down the pro-Nazi agitators in a danger laden finish.
