Jonah & Co decide to spend the winter in Pau in the French Pyrenees. Their journey is an eventful one to say the least, since Berry takes the wheel and attempts to navigate narrow French back streets after only three driving lessons.

Winter in France suits them perfectly, but disaster strikes when they run out of English cigarettes. It falls to Berry to furnish new supplies from home, but how to evade the vigilance of the French customs? Berry chooses pepper ... with not quite the results he expects.

Their six months in France are certainly not quiet, with thefts, smuggling, some dramatic car journeys, a kidnap attempt and an engagement. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Mercer, Cecil William

Author Image

Cecil William Mercer (1885-1960), better known by his pen-name, Dornford Yates, was a British author. Trained as a lawyer, he turned to writing in the 1920s. He is best known for a series of books featuring playboy Berry Pleydell. These books described Berry's wealthy, indolent life and his circle of friends. The books were very popular in the interwar years. Mercer also wrote a series of international thrillers centred around Richard Chandos, a suave crime solving detective. His work was influenced by the writings of Anthony Hope who was his uncle. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
