Edward, tenth generation nose (and it is a whopper, complete with a very unusual bump at the top), discovers he's part of a conspiracy that has killed moswt of his forebears. As he delves into the mystery of why, this man who loves predictability suddenly becomes unpredictable (at times, to his wife's delight). Who are the mysterious Greeks who folow him? Why did Peregrine and Humphrey die? Why did Humphrey's body vanish frm the churchyard? All will be made clear in this whimsical, cheese lovers story. A 4.
