Description

New York Times best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith brings his peerless wit to this second entry featuring a motley collection of residents in London's Pimlico neighborhood. Literary agent Barbara Ragg has agreed to represent a man writing a book about his experiences hanging out with the Abominable Snowman. And our small, furry, endlessly surprising canine hero, Freddie de la Hay, has been recruited by MI6 to infiltrate a Russian spy ring. Needless to say, the other denizens of Corduroy Mansions have issues of their own. But all of them will be addressed with the wit, charm, and insight into the foibles of the human condition that have become the hallmark of this truly peerless storyteller.

Professional reviews

"With his unerring ability to capture real people (and now dogs), Alexander McCall Smith (44 SCOTLAND STREET) introduces another group of intriguing fictional folk, the disparate residents of Corduroy Mansions, the apartment complex first serialized on Telegraph.co.uk. Through Simon Prebble's expert narration, listeners encounter an assortment of romantic entanglements, an autobiography from the Yeti, and a villain named Oedipus Snark. However, the focus of this second installment is William French, a failed wine merchant, and his Pimlico terrier, Freddie de la Hay. When Freddie is recruited by MI6 to infiltrate a gang of Russian spies, Prebble underplays McCall Smith's restrained humor, allowing precise word choice, arcane literary references, and bizarre situations to create their own low-key hilarity. A delightful breath of fresh air. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
