‘If all girls are like that -’ said William. ‘Well, when you think of all the hundreds of girls there must be in the world – well, it makes you feel sick.’
William’s natural desire to do the right thing leads him into serious trouble, as usual, and when blackmail and kidnapping are involved, it’s no surprise. Even when he turns over a new leaf, the consequences are dire. But it’s his new neighbour Violet Elizabeth Bott who really causes chaos – and no one will believe that it’s not William’s fault . . .
