Synopsis

Living in a cozy, small town, tucked away in the south of England, unremarkable average guy Alfie Bowman has been heard to describe himself as a refugee from a failed life. In his own words he’s ordinary looking, starting to lose his hair, a little bit shorter than average, a little bit heavier than he should be, and a lot less fit than he really ought to be. Most definitely an unlikely hero!

At the ripe old age of 50, he’s escaped an unhappy marriage and just wants to re-start his life, relax and have some fun, and maybe do some writing - if only he could find something to write about! 

So when he stops in the pub for a couple of pints on the way home one night, the last thing he expects to have to do is save a stunning young woman half his age from a fracas with an enormous thug with huge fists! But that’s exactly what he does do, because, as far as Alfie’s concerned, there are some things you can’t just stand by and ignore.

Waking up in hospital later that night he wonders if maybe getting involved hadn’t been the best decision he’d ever made after all! But he soon learns that the beating he’d been given had nothing to do with events in the pub... 

So who beat him up, and why? Who is the stunning young woman and what’s she doing in town? 

This isn’t a typical British detective story. As a novella is neither the longest, nor the greatest, book you’ll ever read, but it was never meant to be. It’s the first in a series about unlikely hero (turned amateur sleuth) Alfie Bowman. It’s sole aim is to be an entertaining, fun read, with a bit of mystery, a dash of pathos, a touch of romance and a good dollop of humour. You never know, you just might enjoy it!
