In the final instalment in his autobiographical trilogy, Robert Douglas takes us through the sixties and into the eighties with his memories of life as a prison officer, and, at the end of his career, as an electricity chargehand driving around the Yorkshire Dales. He tells us of his prison experiences, with anecdotes about many of the most famous criminals in British history -- the Krays, the Richardsons, the Great Train Robbers, Soviet spies and many more. Told in the same endearing and fascinating voice that readers of LAST SONG OF THE NIGHT TRAM and SOMEWHERE TO LAY MY HEAD first fell in love with, this volume continues the story of Robert's remarkable journey of self-education, introducing us to larger-than-life characters on both sides of the bars, and evoking a strong sense of social change as Britain emerged from the post-War gloom into the bright lights of the Beatles years.

Excerpt from During Her Majesty's Pleasure No more do I, answered the lawyer, if she isn't my wife. I admit that Lady Chil worth is handsome - one of the handsomest women I know - and I am quite willing to take your word for her warmth of heart and generosity. I knew her in Italy before she was Lady Chilworth, said the doctor. Then you know who she was, and why Chil worth married her, said the lawyer eagerly. I know that she was a good woman - and worthy of his affection. If you want to know more than that you must ask Chilworth.

Revolving around the infamous gentlemen's club of London, Scoundrels: Her Majesty's Pleasure concludes the combative joint memoirs of adventurer-spies Major Cornwall and Major Trevelyan. In this satisfying final denouement, Britannia is under attack! The Majors mount a daring jailbreak at London Zoo, play for their lives in a Monte Carlo casino, and stage a coup under the African sun, as they seek revenge on their Moriarty-like nemesis, Gruber Hansclapp. The stage is set for a right royal rumble at the heart of the British Establishment - which goes some way to explain why the Majors have been under house arrest for the last thirty years.
