The Amazing Test Match Crime by Adrian Alington

It is no exaggeration to say that all England waited with passionate eagerness for the final match to be played at the Oval. For this was to be played to a finish and would decide the fate of the Ashes.

First Published in 1939, this is a tale of England agog with excitement as the final Test Match against Australia draws near. But no corner of the land has the fate of the Ashes closer to its heart than the village of Wattlecombe Ducis, Glebeshire.

It was here at the Manor House that Norman Blood, captain of England, spent his childhood playing cricket with the vicar's radiant daughter, Monica. And it was she who presented young Joe Prestwick with a belt on the occasion of his first game of cricket. As Sir Timothy Blood remarked, 'I would rather see the whole village dead at my feet than a man bowling in braces.'

With a short � but sensational � career behind him, Joe just needs to be selected to play at the Oval for Monica to marry him: everything depends on the Test.

But The Bad Men, Europe's most wanted gang, have no intention of letting the best team win. Sawn-off Carlo, The Professor and Ralph the Disappointment (an Englishman who, knowing the rules of the Game, is eternally damned for not playing by them) plan to strike a blow at the very heart of proud Albion and her Empire.

The Amazing Test Match Crime is a wicked yet affectionate comedy of cricketing (and criminal) manners, proving � as if proof were needed � that a straight bat and nimble spinning finger will always win
