It is a testament to this author's writing skill that even though I have read this book earlier I read it all over again. This book from the Clifton Chronicles deals with the Cliftons and the Barringtons in the post war era and gripping as it is at some points archer, with his droll British humour, keeps us in stitches. And what do you know? Another cliffhanger. Am waiting with bated breath for that one.
