When gang warfare breaks out on the Isle of Wight, Victor Green, tax inspector and poet, unexpectedly solves the mystery Victor Green is 37, unmarried, and works at the tax office. He lives alone and is the sort of man who irons his underpants. When Victor receives a letter from the council telling him to prune a lime tree in his front garden, he is anxious to oblige, although he is not much of a gardener and does not like heights. A disgruntled pigeon startles him and he falls from the tree, landing on a passerby—and the victim happens to be gangster Tommy Hewson, generally known as Gruesome. The local paper misprints Victor's name, calling him Vincent Green, the name used by an international hit-man. Expecting a turf war, two local gangs embark on a campaign of destruction—each calling on the hapless Victor/Vincent to help. Inheriting Gruesome's poodle, Fluffy, dubbed the Angel of Death, and pursued by a policeman's daughter, Victor's life is turned upside down. Making friends and enemies along the way, as well as leaving a trail of bodies in his wake, Victor's thrilling adventure will appeal to all crime fiction fans and leave readers laughing out loud.
