The Moving Toyshop (Classic Crime) - Edmund Crispin I *want* to like Crispin, but I just can't. This book was okay. I certainly did learn a few new words: fortalice, atrabilious, tautologist, and steatopygic. But I find him kind of negative and disdainful. This is the second one I've tried and it's considered one of his best, so I probably won't try another one.
