Miles Dorrington, big and sincere but not over-endowed with the quickest of brains, decides to flush out the spy as his friend Lady Henrietta Selwick is in danger. Amazingly, the quick-witted Lady Henrietta actually could used Miles' help. Great fun; the perfect curl-up-and-devour-with-chocolates read. A 4.
