Storyline

Oliver is an eccentric professor of comparative religions at a university which is downsizing its humanities department. Now in forced retirement, Oliver, who is addicted to word games, puzzles, and anagrams, sets out in search of Aristotle, his favorite crossword puzzle compiler, but finds his Welsh home has burned down. When he reports Aristotle as a missing person to the police, he is considered a crackpot and assigned to WPC Diane Priest. In order to prove his sincerity to her, he researches the cold case of a murdered farmer and turns up evidence that her superintendent may be implicated in the unsolved homicide. When Priest confronts her superior with the evidence, she is put on suspension and conditionally agrees to accompany Oliver on his odyssey. Written by duke1029@aol.com
