Anyone wanting to know why the English are so good at espionage will find his answer in E.F. Benson's classic. The "between the Wars" village of Riseholme (pronounced "Rizzem") is populated entirely by Miss Marples and Wodehouse and Austen characters, untroubled by money worries, children, or any serious passions or moral scruples. They are therefore free to indulge in machinations that the KGB would call underhanded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapp_and_Lucia

A fun book that makes me want to move to a small English village and join "society".
