The Case of the Gilded Fly [7 hours 22 mins] 1944
Theatre companies are notorious hotbeds of intrigue, and few are more intriguing than the company currently in residence at Oxford University. Center-stage is the beautiful, malicious Yseut - a mediocre actress with a stellar talent for destroying men. Rounding out the cast are more than a few of her past and present conquests, and the women who love them. And watching from the wings is Professor Gervase Fen - scholar, wit, and fop extraordinaire - who would infinitely rather solve crimes than expound on English literature. When Yseut is murdered, Fen finally gets his wish.

Frequent Hearses [7 hours 23 mins] 1950
Gervase Fen is more at home in his ivory tower than in a London film studio, but murder can take place anywhere, and aspiring actress Gloria Scott's suicide definitely looks like murder. Oxford don Gervase Fen is at the film studios to advise about a film biography of Alexander Pope.

When a lecherous cameraman is poisoned before his very eyes, Fen finds himself 'consulting' on a far more familiar matter - murder!

Edmund Crispin was the pseudonym of Robert Bruce Montgomery, (usually credited as Bruce Montgomery) (1921-197 an English crime writer and composer. His novels feature the Oxford don Gervase Fen, who is the Professor of English at the university and fellow of St Christopher's College, a fictional institution that Crispin locates next to St John's College. Fen is an eccentric, sometimes absent-minded, character reportedly based on the Oxford professor W. E. Moore. The whodunit novels have complex plots and fantastic, somewhat unbelievable solutions, including examples of the locked room mystery. They are written in a humorous, literary and sometimes farcical style and contain frequent references to English literature, poetry, and music. Crispin is considered by many to be one of the last great exponents of the British 'classic' crime mystery.
