Limey Gumshoe : The True-life Adventures of an Undercover Detective, Paperback

Limey Gumshoe : The True-life Adventures of an Undercover Detective Paperback


House-sitting in Boston one winter, Will Randall picks up with one of his more disreputable travel buddies, Jack J.

Makepeace, and life gets a great deal more exciting. Makepeace introduces Randall to his current employers, Chestnut Investigations, and soon Will finds himself appointed apprentice Private Investigator.

He tails mongrels and errant husbands, attends a seminar on Blood Spatter and is recruited in a lapdancing club by an anti-government go-go girl.

Then emotional stakes are suddenly raised when Will Randall, unlikely Limey Gumshoe, finds himself investigating the disappearance of a sixteen-year-old girl from her affluent home, and fighting to save a vulnerable boy from the housing projects from a miscarriage of justice. With his latest adventures in Limey Gumshoe, Will Randall gives us an often hilarious, sometimes scary, eye-opening perspective on the bizarre world of private investigation.
