I've just reread Tom Holt's "A better Mousetrap". it is not as good as some of his earlier ones but worth a few hours.
"Snow White & the Seven Samurai" and "Earth, Air, Fire & Custard" are both stand out titles. ("Flying Dutch is probably still my favourite TH book, though.)
All Tom Holt's works are worth re-reading. Alas, our local library lacks many.
from my recorded reading list.
Earth, air, fire and custard
In your dreams
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sausages
May contain traces of magic
The Better Mousetrap
When it's a jar
You don't have to be evil to work here, but it helps
My favourite (apart, of course, from those about J.W. Wells & Co
., (the magic firm from The Sorcerer
(Gilbert & Sullivan
))) would be Blonde Bombshell
Alas, so many I may not get to read.
