Fiction. Mystery. Foolishly, the British and Irish governments have chosen the tactless and impatient Baroness Troutbeck to chair a conference on Anglo-Irish cultural sensitivities. She instantly press-gangs Robert Amiss, her young friend and reluctant accomplice, into becoming conference organizer. When a delegate plummets off the battlements, no oneā??not even the authoritiesā??can decide whether it was by accident or design.

I listened to the audio version of this book masterfully read by Bill Wallis. It's one of the finest (and funniest) political and social satires I have read (listened to) in a long time. You will laugh out loud as Edwards makes fun of political correctness, conferences, movements, religion, politics, just about everything. I'm sorry the offended other reviewer failed to see the humor and took everything so seriously. This is a marvelous book. ( )
