The Dog Who Came In From The Cold is another delightful book by Alexander McCall Smith. Loveable canine Freddy de la Hay, is recruited by MI6 to undertake a dangerous mission to spy on the Russians. His owner, William, is persuaded to let him go, much to Freddy’s distress. Anyone who has read any of the books in this series, Corduroy Mansions, will remember Caroline and her flat mate Dee. Caroline is in a relationship with James, but it is not entirely satisfactory. Dee is still working on her health products. Berthea Snark, the psychiatrist, is on a mission to save her brother Terry from himself, and Barbara Ragg the publisher, is in love and trying to change her life, after taking a trip to the beautiful Scottish Highlands. All these threads intertwine and make for a funny,philosophical, and at times moving account of the character’s lives in London.
