A novel by

 
 
The imminent publication in a limited edition of a scandalously anti-Semitic book - The Open Bellied Mountain - by the printing house of Saxant and Senss, finds the author of the inflammatory work - Fortinbras Carn - and his closest relatives receiving disturbing threatening letters; threats that soon have to be taken deadly seriously when the author's wife is killed in mysterious circumstances.

Mrs. Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley is soon drawn into a mystery as bizarre and as baffling as any that she has ever encountered during her long and illustrious career. Ably assisted by her resolute and energetic nephew Carey, and by the young and enterprising solicitor to the author's family, she finds herself battling Nazis, nudists and gun-toting motorcyclists in equal numbers; unmasking the reason behind a sudden craze for wearing false beards; and the origin of several dismembered human body parts, which begin to appear in a variety of increasingly peculiar locations. All before eventually arriving at the case's unexpected and surreal climax.
