The Cuckoos of Batch Magna (The Batch Magna Novels)

When Sir Humphrey Miles Pinkerton Strange, huntin’ shootin’ and fishin’ Squire of Batch Magna, goes to his reward (doubtless to find God as true-blue British as his more recent but equally worthy ancestors), his rambling but rotting estate passes to distant relative Humph, a hapless dollar doodler in New York. With $$ in his eyes, Humph decides to make a killing by transforming the sleepy backwater of Batch Magna into a theme park image of rural England — a vacation paradise for free-spending US millionaires.

But while the village’s threadbare businessmen see the plan as a windfall, the tenants of the estate’s dilapidated houseboats are above any consideration of filthy lucre and stand their ground for tradition’s sake.
