Final Word

August 2, 1996

This week's Final Word comes from the last novel of a crime writer who was married to an archaeologist:

"Hannibal took a step towards him, received a tap on the shoulder and gently wagged his tail. 'I hereby create you a Count of this Realm.' 'Count Hannibal. Isn't that lovely?' said Tuppence.'What a proud dog you ought to be!'"

No one correctly guessed last week's Final Word, which was taken from Somerset Maugham's The Moon and Sixpence , so next week's book token will be doubled to £40.
