    Part of that smartness was his keeping, for the whole of his long depraved life, one jump ahead of the law. A definitive edition has now been published. I tried to pick up on a topic of particular interest to me, his third chapter, The Siren Islets, and lasted a little longer. Well or ill, he always insisted on getting through his tasks in a businesslike fashion. There was nothing he despised more than inefficiency. When Douglas was five, his father was killed in a mountaineering accident, and in he was sent to be educated at Yarlet Hall School near Stafford.

    But there was evidently a little touch of spitefulness and malice about Africa; something almost human. This is not light reading, not the kind of travel book for hotel and restaurant reviews. Now if you like heavy industry and harbours and 'people watching' this is the place. Bari is a typical Southern city, the sort of place where you may see someone being kidnapped. He cites snippets of Latin, and uses Italian phrases, with no translation for the benefit of readers like me.
