A Barrow Boy’s Cadenza (Book 3 in the Kind Hearts and Martinets series)
Really is a breath of fresh air in what can often be a fairly staid area of the literary marketplace. Possesses numerous positive features which make it worthy of showcasing to a wider audience who will, I have little doubt, not only be entertained by the writing, but moved by it, amused by it and provoked to think by it.
About A Barrow Boy’s Cadenza (Book 3 in the Kind Hearts and Martinets series)
DCI Jack Austin – Jane to his friends and the not so friendly – knew he shouldn’t have come in to work. Following a terrorist bomb, an incident with a tutu and a hangover that would fell an elephant, investigating dead dogs, dodging bullets and being pulled sopping wet from a naval harbour is not conducive to a sunny disposition. But when the Head of Armed Forces and a City Banker are brutally murdered what is a dashing DCI to do? FORCE, a powerful Star Chamber, is under threat and Jack will need to go deep undercover to get to the bottom of the sinister plot.
As revelations and rocket attacks threaten to turn his world upside down (and ruin his best pair of trousers), Jack will need courage, skill and a huge dose of lady luck if he is to bring the perpetrators of a nefarious plot that goes all the way to the Prime Minister’s office to justice. As the trail leads to a showdown at the Albert Hall, Jack Austin, quintessential jumped up barrow boy and Portsmouth’s very own self-styled national icon, must fight to save his reputation, the country, and the lives of those who matter most. And work out just what a dead dog has to do with it all.
