This Is Nick and Carter at their youthful prime—after their forced wanderings are past, their wealth enormous, their reputations global, and their love still unshakeable. They have a beautiful house in Paris, and a villa in St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the most exclusive part of this glittering area.
And guess who crashes the party—the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. These two were still very much public figures in my childhood, as was their story. But if you’ve seen “The Crown,” you have the idea. What makes this even more fascinating is that it focuses not on Nick and Carter, who are more annoyed than anything at the uninvited appearance of Wallis and David Windsor, but on Parnell and Leticia Williams, Nick’s father and stepmother. We get to see this formidable pair—the hateful old doctor transformed by his love for Nick’s secretary’s mom—in action. We also get to see American responses to this celebrity couple, who schmoozed and mooched their way through society for decades.
This holiday harks back to the Nick & Carter mysteries…when something was up and our heroes went along for the ride. It’s by knowing the full story behind this story that you really appreciate the author’s rich imagination and great sense of period and place.
