An unexpected good story
I have enioyed a few other of Pearce's novels, and I was not expecting a lot from this one.
Mantle is not my favourite narrator for his stories about 'A Dead Man in....'
It was a most interesting plot and well read.
No car chases or superpersons or steamy sexual descriptions, the light hearted humour is still there and there is a mystery...who did kill cock robin?.. and why!
Set in Europe before The Great War. Seymore is sent to Gibralter and Barcelona superficially to investigate theft of Naval Stores while he tries to learn why and how an Englishman died in a Spanish Prison.
