Aiding and Abetting is a novel by Muriel Spark published in 2000, six years before her death.
Aiding and Abetting is a novel by Muriel Spark published in 2000, six years before her death. Unlike her other novels, it is based partly on a documented occurrence; however, as the author states in a note, she takes liberties with the facts. The central figure, Hildegarde Wolf, is a fraudulent psychiatrist, née Beate Pappenheim, working in Paris.
Also by Muriel Spark. However, the police had one very strongly felt complaint: the missing Earl had been aided and abetted in his movements subsequent to the murder. His upper-class friends, said the police, had helped the suspect to get away and cover his tracks. They mocked the police, they stonewalled the enquiries.

It says in all the books about him that he ate just that and only that, Jean-Pierre said. If you prepared the meal he would of course eat it eagerly, she said. Jean-Pierre was indeed a good cook and sometimes made their dinner on the nights-off of their two au pair young men. Which one should we invite, Lucan I or Lucan II? said Hildegard. Lucan II alias Lucky. That’s what I’ll do. Invite Lucky and give him smoked salmon and lamb chops. That diet of his was a detail reported in all the books and articles about him. It would be of some interest to see how he reacts.
Aiding and Abetting book. 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.
It’s an independent entity of central Africa, slightly north of the Equator. But certainly they wouldn’t have any witchery and magic there, I imagine, ventured Jean-Pierre know something. My grandfather Delihu is still a paramount head man. My uncle was a voodoo chap, he died. He was definitely what you would call in your terms a witch doctor. He performed great good, especially with rites and totems and herbs and of course the terror of beliefs. Beliefs are essential

Muriel Spark, one of Britain's greatest living novelists, returns to the literary stage with her most wickedly amusing and subversive novel in years, a savagely witty tale of murder and escape based on the notorious real-life case of Lord Lucan. A dissolute member of the British aristocracy, "Lucky" Lucan has been missing since he accidentally murdered his children's nanny in an abortive attempt on his wife's life.
Dame Muriel's 21st novel adds to the stock of urban myths surrounding the whereabouts of Lord Lucan. Ambiguous and even perverse though her scenario proves to be, 82-year old Spark's smartly turned out prose still retains its distinctive bite. Hildegard Wolf is a German psychiatrist practicing in Paris. She lives a comfortable life: two gay men service her domestic needs, while a French boyfriend sees to the rest.
