The Fourth Bear

Fantasy by Jasper Fforde


The inimitable Jasper Fforde gives readers another delightful mash-up of detective fiction and nursery rhyme, returning to those mean streets where no character is innocent. The Gingerbreadman—sadist, psychopath, cookie—is on the loose in Reading, but that’s not who Detective Jack Spratt and Sergeant Mary Mary are after. Instead, they’ve been demoted to searching for missing journalist “Goldy” Hatchett. The last witnesses to see her alive were the reclusive Three Bears, and right away Spratt senses something furry—uh, funny—about their story, starting with the porridge. The Fourth Bear is a delirious new romp from our most irrepressible fabulist.

Sehr kurzweilig, dabei aber noch wohl durchdacht. Fforde verwendet Details aus Märchen brilliant um daraus einen ironischen, wortwitzigen und spannenden Krimi zu bauen.
