Аннотация к книге "Gentleman in Waiting" Ronald Griffin:
When young James Fotheril arrived at Capfell Hall as butler to two elderly ladies. Lady Dora and Lady Elvina. Little did he know what the position was to bring.
Hard times prevailed and Jack the stable boy after being dismissed, hanged himself.
So why did Inspector Bird point an accusing finger at Lady Dora?
After temporally dismissing James, the two ladies did a flit, seeking refuge in a Brighton Hotel?
James decided to take a short holiday and by a coincidence found himself in Brighton looking for work.
Only to discover the whereabouts of the two ladies. Lady Dora at the hotel's ball impersonating Anastasia the estranged Russian Princess. Then James appeared in a Russian costume and pronounced her as a fake and quickly disappeared.
A novel of mystery, intrigue, suspense and high comedy and in the end did- ' Well end well? '
