Good yarn with annoying errors.,

This review is from: Princess Elizabeth's Spy: A Maggie Hope Mystery (Maggie Hope Mysteries) (Paperback)
I share Chrissie's concerns about careless editing or proofreading. Lord Wigram, Governor of the Castle, was referred to in several different guises such as Lord Clive or Sir Clive. The correct form of address is Lord Wigram. I don't think duvets were in common useage in England in the war years. Early on in the book a remark is made about the Royal Family having one egg each per week, yet later on a maid puts down "another" platter of scrambled eggs on the breakfast table. There really wasn't a great deal of food around during the war years, yet these characters seem to eat very well.
It was a good story, well told, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
