London based private investigator David Good has been asked by a new client to track down his wife, who has walked out on him with fifty thousand pounds in her handbag and not been seen since. Easy enough, thinks Good, but he’s about to find himself part of a magic show, where more than his sense of humour may be about to disappear.

When a member of Her Majesty’s tax inspectorate with ambitions of her own makes him an unwelcome offer he can’t refuse, things become a whole lot more complicated. And it doesn’t help that he soon finds himself being distracted by the amorous advances of the kind of woman he’d normally think of as being out of his league.

Events then take a sinister turn that leaves Good wondering if he hasn’t been looking in entirely the wrong place and that he might need his very own wand if he’s going to lift the vanishing spell that’s been cast over this case.

Join David Good in his latest romp across 1980s London.

"Westerham’s writing is tight, smooth to read, carries great descriptions and all with a dry wit and wry humor." Amazon USA review of 'Good Girl Gone Bad'.

About the Author

Ben grew up in the once rural county of Kent, spending as much time as humanly possible with his mates causing mayhem in the nearby countryside. Later he spent three years as an undergraduate in the altogether different environment of what was then the recovering metropolis of Manchester. A fabulous place for a student. It was as this idealic phase of life came to an end, and the depressing world of work began to take its place ,that Ben's urge to give vent to his creative side started to seep out in a growing stream of bits and pieces writing. A disjointed and eclectic mix for a long time, this eventually morphed in to complete pieces of work, covering novels, poetry, song lyrics, plays and even a few pieces of non-fiction. Having completed what felt like an excessively long apprenticeship, Ben chose to focus on the world of crime, in particular drawing on his experience of that whirlwind of a decade, the 1980s. Humour is an important and frequently present element of Ben's writing. Although primarily there to entertain the reader, it also helps Ben avoid the trap of taking himself and his writing too seriously.
