"Contains all the best and familiar Amis qualities -- including superb sexual comedy."
Like all good medieval coaching inns, the Green Man in Fareham, Hertfordshire, boasts a resident, if retired, ghost: Dr Thomas Underhill, a notorious seventeenth-century practitioner of black arts and sexual deviancy, rumoured to have killed his wife. The landlord, Maurice Allington, is the sole witness to the renaissance of the malign Underhill. Led by curiosity and an anxious desire to vindicate his sanity, Allington uncovers the key to Underhill's satanic secrets. And the skeletons in the cupboard of Allington's own domestic affairs are just rattling to get out, too.
Synopsis: Maurice Allington, dissipated, cultivated, paradoxically engaging, is the modern landlord of a medieval coaching inn, "The Green Man." As an old inn should, it has a persistent, long-quiescent ghosts: Dr. Thomas Underhill, a 17th-century practitioner of the black arts and a sexual deviant suspected of two hideous murders.
