Detective story from Amricn Krnl Lssns Intrmdit Student's Book.

The story line itself is basically the same, although the hero-Edward Coke in England, Gordon Fletcher here-borrows the old lady's truck in Unit 7 of the American edition rather than stealing the policeman's bicycle. He also later effects his escape in the police car without having to attack his pursuers, as he d oes in the British edition.
In general, then, the American ed ition is the same book with the locale and language Americanized and a few changes made to eliminate the possibility offending students from certain religious backgrounds. Curiously, however, while the British version is careful to point out that Coke slept on the
sofa in Kate's apartment in Unit 18, Fletcher's place of repose is left to the reader's imagination in the American edition.
