|Plot Summary of A Breach of Promise|
|" This is a tale of a man being sued for a breach of promise, (reneging on a marriage proposal he claims never to have made) and the ensuing court battle which reveals more than anyone ever dreamt about the litigants and the accused in a startling and wholly unexpected manner! A crashlingly good read- I was almost afraid to turn the page for fear I'd be yet again hit broadside with the unexpected!I always try and beat the Detective to the finish, and could'nt do it with this book! Dash it! Jolly good~~~"
