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?

Heartwarming and funny
I love AMS's characters. They are like old friends - full of all of the characteristics that make us human. The story is a blurr. Not much really happens, but there is still suspense and resolution. Fun to read, but very light.
A bit shorter than most. What's not to enjoy? Wonderful dog, well meaning people occasionally going astray. Redemption for the wicked. Nice ending which leaves the reader wondering what will happen next.
I've listened to others in this series. All first rate.
Try to appreciate my friends more!
Waiting for the next by Alexander McCall Smith - Botswana, Scotland or England.

melrose place has gone to the dogs
Alexander Mccall Smith is one of my favorites. I always enjoy reading/listening to his books. He makes the ordinary etraordinary and makes us think it's ordinary.
The way the characters are intertwined. Like it is a big world but a small world. Plus they all have their pluses and minus. Since All my Children is off the air this is my new soap opera only it is funny.
I have listened to other cordoroy mansion series. I love all his characterizations.
Actually I did listen to it all in one sitting I was home sick and I just laid in bed and listened.
Alexander mcCall Smith is so great. I also listen to No 1 ladies detective and portugese irregular verbs. I love it.
