    Description
    A man of devilish charm and enterprising spirit, Dougal Douglas is employed to revitalise the ailing firm of Meadows, Meade & Grindley. He succeeds, but not quite in the way Mr Druce, his employer, intended. Strange things begin to happen as Dougal exerts an uncanny influence on the inhabitants of Peckham Rye and brings absenteeism, blackmail, violence and even murder into their lives.
    'In Peckham Rye we see clear evidence of a novelist in exhilarating command of her material and her tone of voice - the Sparkian world in full-throated and exuberant splendour.'
    William Boyd
