An eclectic and skilfully-written series of absorbing tales
About the Book:
Life thwarts Floyd’s goals sooner or later. A rival challenges his new invention. His buried gold is confiscated by HM Treasury. He is wrongly charged with arson. He is unfairly dismissed. He campaigns to change part of English punctuation, yet inadvertently continues to use it afterwards. Helping a friend lands him in hospital. What has he done to deserve all this?
Yet he is resourceful in dealing with his adverse situations, whether personal or confronting the might of the state. Other characters must eat humble pie to stay afloat. College lecturer Ed Beck forsakes his principles. And Matt abandons his business dreams to preserve an old friendship.
Excerpt from the book:
“He was in town about to make arrangements to obtain a basket of European currencies: German marks, Swiss francs, Italian lire, French francs and Dutch guilders.
‘Excuse me sir,’ said a man in a raincoat, ‘police.’ He and his colleague produced a badge.
‘What’s this about?’
‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’
‘I don’t have to answer this!’
‘We can do this down at the station if you like.’
The detective offered Floyd a cigarette, which he refused.
‘So,’ asked the detective. ‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’
‘At the Cloak and Dagger, having a drink.’
‘On your own?’
‘No, with a work colleague.’
‘Where do you work?’
‘Not working at the moment. I’m due to go on an Inter-rail trip around Europe quite soon.’
‘Where did you last work?’
The detective and his colleague exchanged glances.
‘Who was the work colleague you were with at the Cloak and Dagger?’
‘Jack Mills,’ said Floyd automatically. It was not until a few minutes later that he remembered what Jack had told him about grassing. But what had Jack done, if anything?”
