Set in Manchester (or was it Birmingham?) this instantly forgettable story is about a private investigator who becomes embroiled in the goings on at the local TV station, is accused of murdering the wife of one of the station chiefs and accidentally breaks a ring of benefit fraud criminals whilst investigating the claim of a gypsy to be descended from royal blood. I got the feeling this was supposed to be very much tongue in cheek and that I was expected to find it all very funny. I didn't.

I often read murder mystery/crime novels by authors I've never read before for a change, and usually enjoy them but then just pass them on for someone else to enjoy. This one really surprised me; I enjoyed it so much that I kept it. The characters are engaging, interesting, and humorous & the narrative keeps you guessing. It is also based near where I live, which makes it all the more enjoyable.
