Even in a remote part of Syke, William Blake Hazlitt finds it hard to hide from his pursuers. His disapearance has caused some concern at the university where he is deputy Registrar -- but when American research student Caroline Nevis decides to investigate, she finds unexpected obstacles put in her path. Nevertheless, she perseveres and goes after Hazlitt, but there are other hunters whose motives are more sinister. Inexorably, they flush Hazlitt out of one hiding place after another, testing all his powers of survival, until he himself turns hunter.

This was written in 1974 and is a parody of spy thrillers. Some of the content is dated -- bar closings, cold war, etc. And as Hazlitt says "English humour . . . She must get used to it." The book is hilarious.

Can a mystery still be called a mystery when the conclusion can be guessed by page 5 and the process is so bland that even the author's remarkable dry wit cannot save it?

And yes, it is a rhetorical question.
