This is the second episode in the hilarious misadventures of Camilla Randall, downwardly mobile manners expert and amateur sleuth, but it can be read as a stand-alone. In this installment, the suddenly-homeless Camilla becomes a 21st century Maid Marian-living rough near the real Sherwood Forest with a band of outlaw English erotica publishers-led by Peter Sherwood, a charming, self-styled Robin Hood who unfortunately may intend to kill her.
When Camilla is invited to publish a book of her "Dr. Manners" columns with UK publisher Sherwood, Ltd, she lands in a gritty criminal world-far from the Merrie Olde England she envisions. The staff are ex-cons and the erotica is kinky. Hungry and penniless, she camps in a Wendy House built from pallets of porn while battling an epic flood, a mendacious American RenFaire wench, and a mysterious killer who may be Peter himself.

Another great Camilla Randal novel by Anne R. Allen. The characters are well drawn and you are rooting for Camilla from the very start as she stands in a dark alley confronted by a mysterous man in a hoody. This brillant murder mystery is funny and at the same time it is dealy serious.
