She’s Queen of the dancefloor and would-be Queen of the con and she’s about to give London based PI David Good a right old run-around.

It seems to private investigator, David Good, that he might well have come face-to-face with the hottest claimant yet for the title of Queen of the Con in 1980s London. He might be no mug himself, but she’s a smooth operator with a ruthless streak as wide as the English Channel and most of her previous victims don’t seem to be in a hurry to cross her path a second time by helping out Good.

There might be one way for him to turn the tables and rescue his new client, but the bad news is that it requires Good to take both his left feet for a twirl on the dancefloor. That could be embarrassing.

But Good soon finds more pressing concerns getting in the way of his latest case when a local gang boss makes him an offer he very definitely can’t refuse. Good is willing, the trouble is the money-laden gambler he is supposed to find is determined to remain very much missing.

Messing up one case would be bad enough. Messing up both could prove terminal. Join Good as he does the quick step across half of London and tries not to fall flat on his face.

"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.
