From the Dust Jacket
Dave Cannon, the American rare book and antique dealer, has played the featured role in most of the Michael Delving mysteries. In Bored To Death he and his English wife come to the peaceful Gloucestershire village of Wade, to have a holiday and perhaps pick up a treasure or two. Cannon finds a treasure, all right — a small thirteenth century silver-gilt casket. But that rare medieval object ensnarls Cannon in a complicated plot involving the phenomenon on the river Severn of a tidal wave called the bore; a bizarre young poet; an ancient Gloucestershire family; and a very modern murder. Michael Delving fits together these diverse elements with his customary wit and dexterity. He tells a story alive with colorful scenes and equally colorful characters.
