CORDUROY MANSIONS - Book 3
In the Corduroy Mansions series of novels, set in London's hip
Pimlico neighborhood, we meet a cast of charming eccentrics,
including perhaps the world's most clever terrier, who make their
home in a handsome, though slightly dilapidated, apartment
It seems the universe itself is conspiring against the residents of
Corduroy Mansions, as they all find themselves struggling with
their nearest and dearest. Oedipus Snark's mother, Berthea, is
still at work on her scathing biography of her son--the only
loathsome Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament; literary agents
Rupert Porter and Barbara Ragg are still battling each other for
first crack at the manuscript of "Autobiography of a Yeti"; fine
arts graduate Caroline Jarvis is busy exploring the blurry line
between friendship and romance; and William French is still
worrying that his son, Eddie, may never leave home, even though
Eddie's got a new wealthy girlfriend. But uppermost in everyone's
mind is William's faithful terrier, Freddie de la Hay--without a
doubt the only dog clever enough to have been recruited by MI6--who
has disappeared while on a mystery tour around the Suffolk
countryside. Will Freddie find his way back to Pimlico? Is Corduroy
Mansions starting to crumble?
Readers will be captivated once again by McCall Smith's genius for
storytelling, his insight into his beautifully crafted characters
and his eye for the quirky details of modern life.
