Description: Lord Lucan was a dissolute member of the British aristocracy whose accidental murder of his children's nanny (he was trying for his wife) and puzzling disappearance created a sensation in Britain -- and a tantalizing mystery as yet unsolved. In Muriel Spark's version of Lucan's flight, his adversary is Beate Pappenheim, a fake Bavarian stigmatic who embezzled millions from devout followers before assuming a new identity as a celebrated psychiatrist. These two inhabitants of the farther shores of morality collide memorably in her brilliant new novel, where "aiding and abetting" Lord Lucan's well-padded fugitive life is the name of the beastly upper-class game and a duel of wits plays out with potentially mortal consequences. The artful murderer meets the master con-woman -- who will emerge victorious?

In part a rumination on the nature of evil, in part a damning indictment of aristocratic mores, "Aiding and Abetting" is a dark and dazzling entertainment from a writer whose clear-eyed judgments never intrude upon her narrative legerdemain. Spark's bitingly satirical wit and seamlessly executed passages quickly undermine the readers' pat moral judgements and seduces them into a world deemed foul by normal standards. And her game of cat and mouses will culminate in a denouement at once deeply shocking and deliciously apt.

"Aiding and Abetting" proves beyond that Muriel Spark retains her crown as the most distinguished and entertaining moral satirist of her day. It is literary fiction at its finest.
