In Aiding and Abetting, the doyenne of literary satire has written a wickedly amusing and subversive novel around the true-crime case of one of England’s most notorious uppercrust scoundrels and the “aiders and abetters” who kept him on the loose.When Lord Lucan walks into psychiatrist Hildegard Wolf’s Paris office, there is one problem: she already has a patient who says he’s Lucan, the fugitive murderer who bludgeoned his children’s nanny in a botched attempt to kill his wife. As Dr. Wolf sets about deciding which of her patients, if either, is the real Lucan, she finds herself in a fierce battle of wills and an exciting chase across Europe. For someone is deceiving someone, and it may be the good doctor, who, despite her unorthodox therapeutic method (she talks mainly about her own life), has a sinister past, too.Exhibiting Muriel Spark’s boundless imagination and biting wit, Aiding and Abetting is a brisk, clever, and deliciously entertaining tale by one of Britain’s greatest living novelists.

2.5 Lord Lucan you might be a toucan
This is going to be a nonsensical review. I was on Muriel Spark's euphoria when I started reading it; well, let's just say my happiness just slide down from that point. The story itself is interesting, based on a true-crime it tried to tell what might have happened to Lord Lucan, the nanny killer....

A rather slight though darkly humorous look at what may have happened to Lord Lucan twenty-five years after he fled justice. I listened to the audio version and Davina Porter did her usual excellent job.
