This hilarious send-up of Downton Abbey places the Crawleys and their staff directly in history's glare
While the Granville family dutifully entertain their guests at Devonton Abbey, an ace team of Secret Service agents camp out as unsuspecting household staff, protecting the Royal Crown and her citizens from impending world war.

Who is aware of the international intrigue concealed below stairs? Will Agent Gates save Britain from her enemies while ensuring Devonton Abbey's reputation is upheld? Will Lady Margaret secure a proposal from Martin Crawhill, the heir to the estate? Will Thompson and O Malley ever get lung cancer?

Wicked and daring. An uproarious adventure suited for anyone who must bear the tedium of reality.

The pictures are awfully nice.

--Lady Flora

Slanderous Utter rot.

--Lord Granville

A graphic expose that triumphs in its ability to question elitist society and esoteric class systems.

Can I be on the cover?
