Kurzbeschreibung

27. April 2010
'...colour. I go to tell monsieur."
She disappeared, and the Princess lay still upon her couch, thinking. Soon she heard steps outside, and with a little sigh she turned her head toward the door. The man who entered was tall, and of the ordinary type of well-born Englishmen. He was carefully dressed, and his somewhat scanty hair was arranged to the best advantage. His features were hard and lifeless. His eyes were just a shade too close together. The maid ushered him in and withdrew at once.
"Come and sit by my side, Nigel, if you want to talk to me," the Princess said. "Walk softly, please. I really have a headache."
"No wonder, in this close room," the man muttered, a little ungraciously. "It smells as though you had been burning incense here."
"It suits me," the Princess answered calmly, "and it happens to be my room. Bring that chair up here and say what you have to say."
The man obeyed in silence. When he had made himself quite comfortable, he raised her hand, the one which was nearest to him...'

Synopsis

Sometimes, Kate said slowly, "I have had strange thoughts about him. Mr. Cecil and the other man, Major Forrest they call him, are still at the Hall, and the servants say that they do little but drink and swear at one another. I wonder sometimes why they are there, and why Mr. Andrew stays away." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Scoundrels and scams in Norfolk and London 31. März 2014
Von Dharma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Scoundrels and Scams in Norfolk and London

Jeanne de la Mesurier is 19 years old, and heiress to a vast fortune. She has left the convent in France where she has lived since her father died, and joined her stepmother in London. Her stepmother is Ena, Princess of Strurm, who is determined to present Jeanne to London society, and to find her a wealthy husband. The Princess, however well born, is a pauper and a scam artist, in league with Major Forrest, a card sharp and bridge hustler.

Thinking to earn some ready cash by preying on the young Lord Ronald Engleton, they decamp to an old manor house on the Norfolk coast, owned by Cecil de la Borne, another impecunious ne'er-do-well. The house is owned by Cecil's brother Andrew, a hale and hearty fisherman, graduate of Eton, and lover of nature.

The first half of the novel is quite funny. Oppenheim humorously portrays the moral flexibility and social manipulations of the impoverished aristocracy.

Oppenheim bought a house on the Norfolk coast after selling his leather business and devoting himself full time to writing. He learned to sail, and in many of his novels, wrote fondly of the people and nature of the Northeast of England.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A romance story, but not just for chicks 3. August 2013
Von KARL IRIKURA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a light book, but with reasonably interesting plot. When a major event proved tamer than I supposed, I felt a little ashamed at my modern expectation for prompt violence. Maybe the weakest aspect is the good-guys/bad-guys division among the characters. Although the author did soften that hard edge, he was only partly successful. I say "not just for chicks" because it wasn't sappy and there weren't any swooning women or seduction schemes. More than one romantic couple is involved, but they're not equally wholesome.
