Angel in the Houseby Mike Ripley
Streetwise chancer Fitzroy Maclean Angel, faced with the prospect of parenthood and a move to the country, has to do the unthinkable - get a job. At the insistence of his fashion designer wife Amy May, he joins Rudgard & Blugden Confidential Investigations, a previously all-female private detective agency. While trying to solve a seemingly impossible crime involving stolen botox, he is distracted by a vivacious redhead with a passion for salsa dancing; a Russian sailor dealing in old East German cars; an estate agent with a passion for Audrey Hepburn; and some very strange goings-on in country houses.
Telos Publishing is proud to present another of its reissues of Mike Ripley's acclaimed series of comic crime novels - complete with a new, specially-written introduction by the author.
