Publisher's Summary

Tim Simpson is busy tracking down paintings by Sir William Nicholson and his "abstract" son, Ben Nicholson, for White's Art Fund, as well as looking into an investment in a film and photographic archive for his bosses. So it comes as a shock when he is accused of murder. The victim, a dubious lady calling herself Bassington, had Tim's name in her diary, and Tim's old rugby-playing friend, Chief Inspector Nobby Roberts of Scotland Yard, is irritatingly insistent.

As Tim comes up against more problems, he begins to realise that it will take all of his esoteric interest in art history, and every ounce of his energy, to bring a bewildering set of events to a dramatic conclusion.

What the Critics Say

"Vivid, lively and original....Deft and professional in the extreme." (Times Literary Supplement)
"A perfect hero in Simpson: honourable, sardonic and adept at well-mannered thuggery." (Literary Review)
"Blends detection, missing paintings, and family fortunes into an adventure that is as rich in colour as it is satisfying. An easy listening, guilty pleasure." (Guardian)

    "Not a thrill"
    What disappointed you about Circles & Squares?

    The story was too complex and nothing caught my attention for the first hour...so I quit.


    What could John Malcolm have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have a feeling this is just one of those books you need to read in your head


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He didn't detract really. The story and details were just to complicated to keep my attention.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I didn't listen to enough to spark any emotions...
