This is the first full-length novel featuring Yates' finest comic creation, Bertram 'Berry' Pleydell. The popular character of Adile is based on the author's first wife, Bettine, a highly gregarious American dancer and actress. Written in response to massive public demand for the Berry stories, this is regarded as one of Yates' best books. Amongst the madcap escapades of the Pleydell clan as they career about the French countryside you will find 'crime, criminals, and some of the funniest writing in the English language'.
