Return to the world of the Nursery Crime Division in this novel from the author of the Thursday Next series and Early Riser

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.
