There's love, and there's revenge. Betsy Lou Saegessor is bent on revenge. Her father is dead, and to top it off, the vast fortune that should have been hers has ended up, through the second marriage of her now deceased stepmother, in the bank account of the legendary and elusive Englishman, C.D. McKee.

So Betsy sets out from New York to seduce and betray him. C.D. is fat and ugly - but boy is he sexy. Betsy follows him through the night clubs of London, grooving to jazz, smoking hash - and plotting murder.

A wickedly funny novel about falling in love -- with an Old Man and the Old World -- despite the best intentions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There isn't a dull line in it * P. G. Wodehouse *
A gloriously funny novel ... it still brings a smile to my face forty years later * Jilly Cooper *
A dedicatedly nasty little novel. Through it all, Miss Dundy's prose glitters like confetti against the gray English sky * NEWSWEEK *
Fierce, gamey, vixenish - as if it was bled not written and one is left with a stack of feathers and cracked bones and witch laughter. Definitely demonic, exquisitely carved, deadly murderous comedy * Dawn Powell, Book Week (NY HERALD TRIBUNE, WASHINGTON POST, SF EXAMINER) *
