Abstract:
"At the hand of an outrageous prankster, top hats are going missing all over London, snatched from the heads of some of the city's most powerful people. But is the hat thief the same as the person responsible for stealing the lost story by Edgar Allan Poe, purloined from a private collection, which Dr. Gideon Fell has just been hired to retrieve? Unlike the manuscript, the hats don't stay stolen for long; each one reappears in unexpected and conspicuous places shortly after being taken. When the most recently vanished hat is found atop a corpse in the foggy depths of the Tower of London, the seemingly harmless pranks become much more serious -- and when the dead man is identified as the nephew of the book collector, Fell's search for the missing story becomes a search for a murderer as well. Reissued for the first time in thirty years, The Mad Hatter Mystery is the second novel in the Dr. Gideon Fell series, which can be enjoyed in any order." -- From publisher's description.
