The Berry Scene
These stories, written in response to huge popular demand, give us classic Berry Pleydell - Yates' finest comic character - at the top of his form. The first story sees Berry capturing a German spy at a village cricket match in 1914, and things get more bizarre from then on. A self-consciously nostalgic work harking back to more decorous days consisting of tense plotting and high farce of the best kind.
