The year is 1935. Clive Staples Lewis (known to his friends as ‘Jack’) and his brother Warren (‘Warnie’) are visiting their young friend Tom Morris at Nesfield Cathedral School. Jack is to be the guest speaker at the school’s speech night. They become eyewitnesses to a murder, an impossible murder. A man stabbed to death by an unseen assailant, and Tom and Jack see his body fall from the rooftop…but the body doesn’t hit the ground until the following day! An entertaining homage to the beloved creator of Narnia–and a celebration of the hugely popular school stories of the early twentieth century–The Floating Body reveals how Jack’s nimble brain again proves invaluable to the police in their attempts to explain the seemingly impossible.
