Publisher's Summary

When philandering Sir Giles Lynchwood decides it's time to wriggle free of his monumentally unattractive wife, Lady Maud, he knows divorce is out of the question. He can't leave her and keep her cash; a reversionary clause on her ancestral home, Handyman Hall, has taken care of that. Lady Maud, for her own special reasons, is also dying to see the back of Sir Giles. Sir Giles dreams of motorways ploughing through the front door of Handyman Hall, of compulsory purchase orders, of loot and no wife. Lady Maud bellows. Blott the gardener watches from his inner sanctum, the greenhouse, and listens...and waits.

Sharpe at his best...

I can't stress enough, just how good Mr. Sharpe's writing is. It's classic Sharpe, can't hold back the laughter. He's wonderful, what a great read.

Riotously funny!

Sharpe has given us a hysterically funny romp through British politics and marital problems among the country gentry. I chortled the whole way through. Be advised: there are mature themes (sexuality, in particular), and the liberal dropping of the F-bomb by one character in particular.

I must say that David Suchet truly brought all the eccentric, stereotypic British "country house set" characters to life brilliantly. I've been looking at the other Sharpe books, but none of them are narrated by Suchet, so I can't decide if I want to get them, as well.
