This is a good example of boys stories which were popular in the early 20th Century. They are set at an English Public School and typically involve a boy, aged about 13, who arrives at the boarding school and faces many challenges, among them the persistent attention of an older bully. Needless to say, he triumphs in the end. Please see below: St. John Pearce, Off His Own Bat, and Goodyear, Forge of Foxenby, for others.

Philip Kerr has written more than ten novels about his cynical, but very appealing, detective Bernie Gunther. They cover his various careers as a homicide inspector with the Berlin police, as a private detective, as head of security in a five-star hotel, and as a dogsbody for the likes of Reinhard Heydrich. This story concerns events in 1943 when under the orders of Joseph Goebbels he is sent to Smolensk to investigate the murder of over 4,000 Polish officers and NCOs three years previously by the Russian NKVD. The background to this is that Stalin had become determined to destroy Poland's potential as a nation, and accordingly he approved Beria's plan to eliminate all Polish leaders, especially the officer corps of their army. Almost 22,000 Poles were duly murdered at five sites, the most notorious of them being at Katyn Forest after it was discovered by the advancing German Army and then revealed in a blaze of publicity. It was learned later that Stalin's plan for the Polish élite included that over 60,000 relatives of the officers were deported to Central Asia, and so too, for good measure, were 65,000 Jews who had fled the German advance but had refused Soviet citizenship.

Kerr, Philip: A Philosophical Investigation. Chatto & Windus. London: 1992. First edition. 8vo. Boards. Fine copy in dj. $38.00

The author, writing in 1992, predicts what life would be like in 2013 when people would be reading The News of the World and watching ‘videodiscs’ for entertainment. Nevertheless this is a compelling thriller about the search for a serial murderer.

In the Preface to the British edition—not printed here—Cyril Connolly remarks that Robin Maugham was “not an imaginative artist but like his uncle [Somerset Maugham], a story-teller.” Well, actually there is plenty of imagination in this story. It is about an older, wealthy gay man living in Tangiers who uses his money to find a boy he believes he can mould and educate. But his schemes turn out to be too clever by half, and they lead to a memorable confrontation between all the principals.

This the second of three novels about the fate of the Bounty, an English ship sent to the Pacific to bring back samples of plants growing on Tahiti. After an idyllic stop on the island many of the crew mutinied, cast the captain and some loyalist sailors adrift in a lifeboard, and then sailed the ship to a remote island where they thought they would be safe. They then sank it to cut off contact with the rest of the world. However, it turned out they were not safe from themselves.

The trilogy begins in 1914 and concerns an English aristocratic family, their relatives and friends. It follows them through one world war and the beginning of the second, ending in 1940. All the characters are vividly drawn and it is a deeply engrossing story. I particularly recommend these novels!

Densely plotted and altogether superb. At the heart of the story is a scurrilous novel and the kind of people who write them. One of them says to the detective: “But writers are a savage breed, Mr. Strike. If you want lifelong friendship and selfless cararaderie, join the army and learn to kill. If you want a lifetime of temporary alliances with peers who will glory in your every failure, write novels.”
