When hopeless petty thief Billy Bumble is arrested and taken away in handcuffs by a vengeful DI Nash, Billy’s wife Allison turns to amateur sleuth Alfie Bowman, the only person she feels she can trust. But, when Alfie contacts his friend DS Dave Slater to try to find out what’s going on, he’s told Nash can’t have arrested anyone because he’s on gardening leave.
So, if Nash hasn’t arrested Billy, has he kidnapped him to exact revenge on Allison? With the local police reluctant to take Billy’s kidnapping seriously, this could be Alfie’s most dangerous case yet as, assisted by best mate Positive Pete, he attempts to find and rescue the unfortunate Billy Bumble.
You definitely don’t want to miss the awesome climax in which Nugent the Nutter turns hero, and an incredulous DS Dave Slater can’t believe the story he’s being told!
