Connolly, Cyril & Peter Levi
SHADE THOSE LAURELS
NY: Pantheon, 1991

First American edition. Octavo. 174 pp. Cloth backed boards in dustjacket. Jacket has light edgewear and closed tear on top edge of back panel. NF/VG. This literary whodunit, set in postwar Britain and replete with literary and gastronomic allusions, was left unfinished by Connolly at his death in 1974 and was completed by Oxford scholar and poet Peter Levi, to whom he divulged the denouement. An aristocratic cast of suspects has gathered at the country estate of famed author Sir Mortimer Gussage to celebrate his birthday and knighthood. When Sir Mortimer succumbs later that evening to an untimely death, it falls to his young admirer and protege, Stephen Kemble, to piece together the parts of this intriguing puzzle. Kemble makes his way through drawing rooms, greenhouses, and garden mazes to arrive at a genuinely surprising ending. Levi succeeds in bringing Connolly's stylish mystery to a seamless conclusion.
