Guy Fawkes is back, and this time it's a toss up who's going to be blown up first: Parliament or Reginald Worcester, gentleman consulting detective. But Guy might not be the only regicide to have been dug up and reanimated. He might be a mere pawn in a plan of diabolical twistiness. Only a detective with a rare brain - and Reggie's is amongst the rarest - could possibly solve this "five-cocktail problem". With the aid of Reeves, his automaton valet, Emmeline, his suffragette fiancé, and Farquharson, a reconstituted dog with an issue with Anglicans, Reggie sets out to save both Queen Victoria and the Empire. This 19,000-word novella is the sequel to the WSFA Small Press Award finalist What Ho, Automaton!

Fun book ruined by a very bad reading
The narrator ( Mr Chantrey) is apparently ignorant of Chris Dolley's series and the famous "Jeeves and Wooster" stories in print and film that inspired them. Here, Reeve's droll responses (half the comedy) are absolutely ruined by voicing him as a cockney in spite of everything previously written about the character. Indeed, all of the returning characters are flubbed. Please consider rerecording this book - Mr. Volley deserves better.

fun romp on Guy Fawks day
Short so a lot of the plot threads are brief. Nice distraction from reality. Don't miss the bloodhound with uncompromising goals.
Recommend " Unpleasantness at Baskerville Hall" for better developed humor.
