Summer's Lease - the classic, international bestselling novel by John Mortimer

'Amusing, entertaining ... and a cracking good read' Sunday Express

'And summer's lease hath all too short a date' - Sonnet 18, William Shakespeare

It's high summer when Molly Pargeter drags her amiably bickering family to a rented Tuscan villa for the holidays. Molly is sure that the house is the perfect setting for their three-week getaway, but soon she becomes fascinated by the lives of the absent owners - and things start to go horribly wrong ...

'With a cosy fluency of wit, Mortimer charms us into his urbane tangle of clues' Mail on Sunday

Summer's Lease, which was made into popular BBC TV mini-series starring John Gielgud, is a delightful novel from Rumpole author John Mortimer: witty, compassionate, humane, perfectly plotted and wonderfully readable. It will be adored by readers of P.G Wodehouse and P.D. James.
