Riassunto: The final volume in the 'A Staircase in Surrey' quintet. Duncan Pattullo is coming to the end of his term as 'narrator' and is thinking of re-marrying, although his former wife continues to cause difficulties. His intended is also providing gossip for the college, but that is as nothing compared to the scandal caused by Watershute, an eminent nuclear physicist. His misdemeanours range from abandoning his family and conducting an affair in Venice, to being drunk at High Table. However, things get very serious when he appears to be involved in activities that might amount to treason. An interesting and convoluted plot, which is a fitting end to this acclaimed series, is carried forward with J.I.M. Stewart's hallmark skill and wit. Full Term can be read in order, or as a standalone novel.
L'autore: John Innes Mackintosh Stewart was born in Edinburgh in 1906 and attended Edinburgh Academy before going up to Oriel College, Oxford. By 1935, he had been awarded the jury chair at the University of Adelaide in Australia as professor of English and had also completed his first detective novel, Death at the President?s Lodging, published under the pseudonym Michael Innes. This was an immediate success and part of a long-running series centered on Inspector Appleby, his primary character when writing as Innes. There were almost fifty titles under the Innes banner completed during his career. In 1946, Stewart returned to the UK and spent two years at Queen's University in Belfast, before being appointed Student (Fellow and Tutor) at Christ Church, Oxford. He was later to hold the post of Reader in English Literature of Oxford University and upon his retirement was made an emeritus professor.
