The second instalment of Ian Sansom’s The County Guides series.
What do they know of England who do not Devon know? Sidmouth. Budleigh Salterton. Dawlish. Teignmouth. Fine market towns, quaint little seaports, lovely villages, coves, fuscia hedges, deep valleys, winding ways, high ridges – and sudden storms.
In the second of “The County Guides”, glorious Devon is the destination.
Swooping down from the majestic heights of Dartmoor, Swanton Morley, Miriam and Stephen Sefton embark on another adventure, only to find themselves involved in a
mystery at All Souls School, Rousdon.
Swanton Morley has been invited to speak at the school’s Founders’ Day.
But a boy has died. With occasional outings to surf and to sample cream teas – Swanton Morley, Sefton and Miriam once again pit their wits against the dark, repressive, anti-intellectual forces of 1930s England.
