Clubland London between the wars, a secret codicil to a will, and a viciously unhappy marriage. The murderer, thief and lying she-devil Rowena is determined to make her husband divorce her so she can marry and dispose of a nobleman, keeping his title and money en route. Dornford Yates' This Publican is an attack on how men are failing to keep their women under control, and how society would be much improved by a bit more obedience all round. For fogeys who need their ideas confirmed.
