About the Book

The story is about a specialist detctive agency illegally located in an art gallery through the good will of the caretaker, Roy Jenkins, who has ambitions to be a vet. The characters comprising the agency are, Ambrose Bonnyweather, a self-centered Scotsman, his secretary, Beatrice Thompson and a 17 year old trainee, Errol Billington.

The caretaker is madly in love with Beatrice, who dislikes him. The visits to a client Josie Hanson regarding the loss of her cat Norma create many misconceptions, confusions and cross purposes, particularly in conversations and make up a story of a total comedy of errors with a froth of sexuality culminating in total confusion and new discoveries within themselves by all the characters.
