In A Conspiracy of Friends, life at Corduroy Mansions, nestled in London's hip Pimlico neighborhood, is as lively as ever. While Berthea Snark scribbles a scathing biography of a Parliament member- her son!- William French frets that his own son will never leave home. And to no one's surprise, clever terrier Freddie de la Hay has sniffed his way into a heap of trouble.

"Corduroy Mansions is the fictional address of some of the most engaging, eccentric, and unforgettable Brits around. First published as serial audio podcasts, it's now wonderfully delineated by master narrator Simon Prebble. Listeners meet Oedipus Snark, "the only truly nasty Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament"; his psychiatrist mother, Berthea, who hopes Oedipus isn't really her son; failed wine merchant William French and his highly intelligent Pimlico terrier, Freddie de la Hay (THE DOG WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, 2011); and a wide cast of charming, sometimes normal, frequently odd personalities. Prebble treats McCall Smith's tender satire, especially the new and recurring characters and their daily escapades, with understated truthfulness, making this third Corduroy Mansions installment a celebration of the ordinary and the outrageous.
