Dornford Yates was the pseudonym of the British novelist Cecil William Mercer (1885-1960). His novels and short stories, some humourous and some thrillers were best-sellers in the period between the two World Wars. Mercer was called to the bar in 1909 and worked there for several years. After the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, he joined the County of London Yeomanry and was commissioned Second Lieutenant. Yates originally wrote short stories for the monthly magazines, and many of his works began as stories in the Windsor Magazine before being collected together in book form. However, his first known published work, Temporary Insanity, appeared in Punch in May 1910, and his second, Like a Tale that is Told appeared in the Red Magazine in July 1910. Amongst his other works are The Brother of Daphne (1914), The Courts of Idleness (1920), Berry and Co. (1921), The Stolen March (1926) and Blind Corner (1927).

Not the best Dornford Yates I've every read, that honor is held for She Painted Her Face. However still a very good book.
An interesting story that keeps you turning the pages, and very good character development.
The only reason it didn't get more stars is that at times it felt a little disjointed. But once you just read on it all made sense.

Dornford Yates can be fun. Despite prose which is dreadfully overblown, even by the standards of the time, he can sometimes inject humour and suspense into his action novels. Unfortunately this isn't one such- it is a love story, unresolved, which relies on some totally unexplained paranormal force of attraction as the fulcrum of the plot, such as it is. Berry and Co, heroes of some of his other novels, make a cameo appearance, but add nothing of value to this dreary pot-boiler. Yates was a snob, a racist and an anti-semite like many of his class and time, so we mustn't judge him too harshly for that, but he should be condemned utterly for committing this atrocity to paper. Despite grammar which is probably flawless, he is a mangler of English when it comes to clear exposition- why use one word when twenty will do? He is learned, well read, no doubt, in the tradition of the classically educated Edwardian English upper middle-classes, but he imparts his knowledge heavily, each new observation landing like a stodgy ladleful of porridge on the one before. There was just enough interest to get me to the end, and when I got there I wished I hadn't.
Even though it's free, don't buy it.

If you love to go back in time then you will enjoy this book. Dornford Yates wrote about the privileged lives of a group of people. In a time that does not exist now. I find it fascinating and the characters are very likeable and sometimes hilarious.

Badly dated. Archaic language, and overly florid descriptions. Dreadful
