The inimitable Jasper Fforde gives readers another delightful mash-up of detective fiction and nursery rhyme, returning to those mean streets where no character is innocent. The Gingerbread man, sadist, psychopath, cookie is on the loose in Reading, but thats not who Detective Jack Spratt and Sergeant Mary Mary are after. Instead, theyve been demoted to searching for missing journalist Goldy Hatchett. The last witnesses to see her alive were the reclusive Three Bears, and right away Spratt senses something furry uh, funny about their story, starting with the porridge. The Fourth Bear is a delirious new romp from our most irrepressible fabulist.
