South London. The 1980s. David Good, a morally confused and womanising private investigator, is hired by a ridiculously beautiful blonde to help her fend off the attentions of a serial blackmailer. But he’s barely got to grips with the woman’s keen sense of self-interest when he stumbles on to something far more unpleasant.
As he digs deeper, he finds there is more than one woman out there in dire need of his help. For once, despite the obvious risk to his own carelessly maintained health, he finds he can’t stop himself going out on a limb in an effort to put an end to some particularly unpleasant behaviour. It’s quite possible that his trade-mark sense of humour won’t be enough to see him safely out the other side of this particular engagement. But time’s running out if he’s going to put an end to a great deal of suffering.
Join David Good as he seeks to simultaneously unravel both the crime and the woman.
