Appealing to Tolkien as well as Lewis enthusiasts, through the characterizations of these literary heroes, the ingenuity of the plot, and the witty and persuasive defence of Christian thinking woven throughout.
Tom Morris and an undergraduate named Auberon Willesden are attending a gathering of the Inklings. The following morning Willesden is found murdered in his room in Magdalen, though both the door and the windows were locked from the inside. And not only has he been murdered: he has been beheaded – and the head is missing!
Who killed the student?
And, more baffling still – how was it done?
It’s a puzzle that will tax the brilliant ingenuity of Jack and his fellow Inklings to the limit.
