The "TV Tie-In Edition" is notable because the original title, "Mr. Stimpson and Mr. Gorse, " was changed to "The Charmer" following a BBC adaptation. The second of Patrick Hamilton's final trilogy about a rather loathsome con man, it is either intentionally more comic than "The West Pier", or I have just adjusted to the premise/5(7).

Mr Stimpson and Mr Gorse was entertaining as an attack on snobbery, but Unknown Assailant - despite being mercifully short - just dragged on and on. In fact the whole book is a little too long winded.
