The Anti-Death League (Penguin Modern Classics). THE RIVERSIDE VILLAS MURDER was his stab at the classic early twentieth-century detective novel; the central hero detective figures of it, the bachelor aesthete Colonel Menton and the teenage Peter Furneaux, might well have gone on to figure in a whole series of murder mysteries set in the 1930s (though somehow it seems better they did not).
The Riverside Villas Murder. Series: Penguin Modern Classics. What was a suspected student prank is followed by murder. At first it is impossible to see the connection, but the eccentric Colonel Manton does. With Peter's help the Colonel unravels a mystery that strikes fear into the heart of a genteel suburban neighbourhood and gives Peter rather more excitement than he bargained for at the tennis club social. This meticulously paced thriller shows Amis at his most subtle and daring. Imprint: Penguin Classics. Published: 07/06/2012.

Kingsley Amis is best remembered today as the author of comic novels-perhaps even the pre-eminent writer in that genre during the second half of the 20th century. But you would hardly guess it if you looked just at his output from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. The Riverside Villas Murder (1973) is an old-school British detective story, while The Alteration (1976) is an alternative history about England in a world that had never experienced the Reformation. All this happened in the aftermath of Amis’s 1965 divorce from Hilary Ann Bardwell after more than 15 years of marriage.

The BBC's own description of this piece: A classic armchair mystery, "The Riverside Villas Murder" has for its hero a 14-year-old boy, Peter Furneaux. The play begins on a summer evening in 1936 and, like all 14-year-olds, Peter is hovering hopefully on the brink between sexual inexperience and initiation. But he is forced into manhood when a crime, truly murderous, is committed by an unknown and almost unidentifiable assailant. Only Peter begins to guess at the truth - a dangerous truth - which leads him to the river bank by moonlight.
