Know-all, contrarian and general irritant Leonard Lumley gets into a spot of trouble on a Red Sea cruise. I’m not sure what to make of this — Benson paints a good satiric portrait of Lumley at the beginning, and I think the point of the story is that he gets his comeuppance at the end; but I found the ending quite hard to follow, and so don’t have a true sense of that having happened.
