In this wickedly funny sequel to MI5 and Me, it is the 1950s, and reluctant typist and spy's daughter Lottie has had the bad luck to fall in love with Harry, a handsome if frustrated young actor, who has been press-ganged into the family business as an undercover agent in the Communist hotbed of British theatre.
Together the young lovers embark on a star-studded adventure through the glittering world of theatre - but between missing files, disapproving parents, and their own burgeoning creative endeavours, life is about to become very complicated indeed....

FABULOUS BOOK BEAUTIFULLY BROUGHT TO LIFE
Six hours and twenty four minutes of pure joy - this is the sequel to the equally delightful and hilarious "MI5 and Me
A Coronet Among the Spooks" also wonderfully read by the talented Candida Gubbins who is the icing on an already irrisistibly tasty cake. What a lovely laugh out loud book, so charming, intriguing and fascinating. Lovely as a straight read through and such a comfort as a feel good pick me up to dip into for a reread. I am so hoping there may be a third in the series to find out what happened next and how Charlotte Bingham's career continued into the swinging sixties. Highly recommended - this book is pure gold.
