The Amazing Test Match Crime

Before 'Sandpapergate' there was The Amazing Test Match Crime.

'Cricket is the great narrative sport, and a close, hard-fought Test Match is the nearest any sport comes to the structure, rhythm and feel of a good novel. The opening is there, if someone is brave enough to take it . . .' Marcus Berkmann

England are due to play Australia Imperia (names have been changed for legal reasons) at the Oval, in the final Test of the summer.

The series hangs in the balance when England's Captain and star player disappears without trace . . .

A wonderful novel which reads like a cross between an episode of Blackadder and England, Their England.
