Publisher: Macmillan

What happens when orphaned Brat Farrar impersonates long dead Patrick Ashby and gains his inheritance makes an effortlessly suave tale of the unmasking of murder. Faultlessly coached, Brat wins his new family -- all save Patrick's twin, Simon. He meets the threats of accidental death safely, learns the truth of young Patrick's death and faces the choice of disgracing the Ashbys or himself. There is melodrama for the climax of an expert English production which combines humor, charm and pleasant people.
