Summary: Professor Crane made a nuisance of himself in Oxford University of 1928: He steals the outcomes of his students‘ research in Anglo-Saxon history. One of his students wants to beat his professor and be famous for the discovery of a new burial site.
Review: Light adventure prose spiked with numerous details of the given research topic. You can smell the rat almost instantly, so the many puzzle details got boring. This is one of MacLeod’s inferior works, although his narrative craftmanship shines through.
