The heartwarming and hilarious second installment in the Corduroy Mansions series presents the further adventures of Alexander McCall Smith's newest, already-beloved characters, including the Pimlico terrier Freddie de la Hay. In the elegantly crumbling four-story mansion block in Pimlico called Corduroy Mansions, the comings and goings of the wonderfully motley crew of residents continue. A pair of New Age operators has determined that Terence Moongrove's estate is the cosmologically correct place for their Centre for Cosmological Studies. Literary agent Barbara Ragg has decided to represent a man who is writing a book about his time "hanging out" with the Abominable Snowman. And our small, furry, endlessly surprising canine hero, Freddie de la Hay -- belonging to failed oenophile William French -- has been recruited by MI6 to infiltrate a Russian spy ring.
