Review Text

Young Sheaffer, who neither toils nor spins (his father is a toothpaste heir) and spends most of his time in the local pub, is vaguely Wodehouse-derived (as are the farcical underpinnings) but he'd never make the Drones. Sheaffer is also a student of "sects" (haw) but not of. . . since in spite of female advances he cannot (tee hee) rise to the occasion. Among his cronies in the Scottish town of Lindenlee: Father Scraw who plans to sell with Sheaffer's help the porn books and condoms that arrived in lieu of Communion wine for repair of the church steeple; nosepicking Mrs. Wilcox whose late husband expired in his cups only to come again as master spy; a visiting sleuth sent by the P.M.; and assorted females including Beatrice who eventually will benefit from the potency pill downed by Sheaffer. It all ends with assorted fantastic happenings and a cache of gold. This Sheaffer's destined for not more than one. (Kirkus Reviews)
