136 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos. "Less well known (than stories of the Colditz and Stalag III escapers) but equally heroic were those of the large numbers of Royal Air Force NCO pilots, observers and air gunners who fell into German hands...A particularly notorius NCO camp was Heydekrug on the Baltic coast in what was East Prussia - the scene of one of the most remarkable POW exploits of the war. A tough, daring and resourceful escaper, Warrant Officer George Grimson, succeeded in establishing an escape route within Nazi Germany itself. Destined to be one of the great classic escape books, 'Sergeant Escapers' tells the story of George Grimson and his fellow NCOs and their attempt, successful and unsuccessful, to outwit their captors, frequently in conditions that made Colditz look like a rest camp. The author...was himself a POW and an eye-witness to the unfolding drama of the Grimson escape saga."

192 pp, 8vo (8" H). "Mullion Castle is a very Stately Home. When the paying customers aren't cluttering up the place, it's the home of the Earl and his family, who include his delightful daughters Patty and Boosie, and dotty Great-aunt Camilla. Also his wife, whose portrait he has now commissioned his old schoolfellow, Charles Honeybath R.A., to paint. Honeybath (is) an astute and inquisitive observer of events; and now he has another intriguing complex of puzzles to ponder over. For instance, who has removed a valuable Hilliard miniature, an ancestral portrait, and substituted an obvious print; and why? Who has removed two of Great-aunt Camilla's water-colours of Italian scenes, and substituted sketches made by her in France; and again, why? And how does it come about that a young undergardener, with the name of Swithin, should posses the family features so strikingly, and be such an attraction to Lady Patience - i.e., Patty? Honeybath addresses himself to these and other teasing problems, while Michael Innes goes his own witty, engaging, tongue-in-cheek way, following what may seem to be a predictable course but surprising us all, Honeybath included, at the finish." Tiny dint on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, soft crease at top of rear flap.
