about this book

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 apace.

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.

Needless to say, the other denizens of Corduroy Mansions have issues of their own. All will be addressed with the wit, charm, and insight into the foibles of the human condition that have become the hallmark of this truly peerless storyteller.
