It’s been a tough year for Bob and Joan Younghusband.
Bob’s been made redundant from his plumbing sales job selling loos and lock nuts, and just as they’re about to get away from it all, Joan loses her beloved father, too.
Deciding the sunny climes of the Med are just what they need, the Younghusbands head for France in their hired camper. But every dream has its price, and this one comes with Joan’s alcoholic stepmother who throws the ultimate spanner in the works.
Then there’s the shocking revelation when Bob and Joan stay with old friends that could rock their relationship to the core… and turn their dream trip into the holiday from hell.
Tailed by an inspector of the French Police Nationale and a Glaswegian gangster by the name of Stephan, Bob and Joan have to find a way out of their home-made, or camper-made, nightmare… or it won’t just be their plans for a relaxing break that go down the toilet.
Murder, mayhem, sex, gangsters and badly spoken French, this dark comedy has it all.

This is a silly book with serious undertones. A story of a vacation gone very wrong, Bob and Joan head off after Joan’s father’s funeral in an attempt to re-ignite their marriage. What they delve into is a nightmare of death, destruction and mayhem when they become intertwined with a dangerous killer and a drug smuggling operation. Complete with police interrogation and humor ranging from slapstick to macabre, this story is intriguing enough to cause the reader to keep turning the pages to see what will happen next. The plot is well thought out and the characters are well developed. The author did a very good job of making the story line believeable. A great book for those of you that enjoy a funny crime story! -Diamante Lavendar, author of Breaking The Silence
