Carnage on the Committee cover

Publishers' blurb

When the chairperson of the prestigious Knapper-Warburton Literary Prize dies in suspicious circumstances, Robert Amiss wastes no time in summoning Baroness 'Jack' Troutbeck to step into the breach.

In deplorable taste and wickedly funny, this, the tenth in the Robert Amiss series, will consolidate the author's reputation for scurrilous humour.

Published in the US by Poisoned Pen Press

Also published as a BBC Audio Book

'Sprightly, saucy and ingenious.'  Sunday Times

'Dudley Edwards is an equal opportunities satirist. She's rude to every persuasion.'  Daily Telegraph

'[Ruth Dudley Edwards] writes ebullient novels filled with entertaining eccentrics.'  The Times

'Marvellously entertaining and iconoclastic series of satires on the British establishment. Ruth Dudley Edwards is a crime writer whom we should treasure - sharp, intelligent and gloriously politically incorrect.'  Mail on Sunday

'Carnage on the Committee is satire at its best... Witty, irrelevant, and down right funny... With her robust language, on the spot assessment of the current situation, this is one of the funniest books that I have read in a long time.' Mystery Women

"Like other venerable British institutions Ruth Dudley Edwards has gutted in previous mysteries, the literary cognoscenti ("the super-ciliati," she calls them) hold no terror for this ribald satirist..."
The New York Times
