Tragedy and chips
Beth and Mack live in the back room of the Captain Twocooks fish and chip shop somewhere in the East Riding. Upstairs, unseen, but far from unheard, lies the Captain, slowly dying. His presence broods over the business. Beth struggles to cope. Has he written a will? What will happen when he goes? Will he ever go? Will anyone help him go? And what do you do with a body?
A funny and contemporary murder mystery where a deep-fried thriller twists and turns into a fast-food reality.
