Well this comprised two short stories: A Present from Paul Temple and Light Fingers, both very enjoyable and both so reminiscent of a time gone by, even before my time, and some people would say that is saying something.

But seriously, Paul and Steve putting the world to rights, what more could one want. Very little violence and impeccable manners from Paul, truly a "gentleman". The stories themselves, are, I think the word is, limited because they are so short, but are none the less fun and as it's New Years Day , I have been generous and rounded the book up to 4 stars. I hope any "Temple" novels I read this year support my generosity, we shall see.
