First-time private investigator Eddie Greene is having a bad weekend. It’s about to get worse …

When Eddie finds the slab-cold body of his first client, he knows something’s up – he only spoke to her fifteen minutes earlier.

Free-wheeling, trash-talking Eddie is not just out of place in a humdrum northern town. He’s out of depth on his first case, out of funds from a now deceased client and out of favour with Weighton’s big society.

As Friday night slides into Saturday morning, each twist turns a bad situation worse; the police want him for murder, the local crime boss wants him dead, the mayor wants him out of town and his girlfriend wants him out of her life.

Increasingly desperate, Eddie takes on all-comers in a barnstorming bid to clear his name. And somewhere between all the froth and fury, his affections are reclaimed by the girl who got away – but will she abide ‘til Monday?

Great fun with some cracking jokes – it reminded me of the Lynne Truss serial on Radio 4.” Sue Fletcher, Deputy MD, Hodder & Stoughton.

Engaging, controlled, visual and fast-paced. Lots of action – a strong sense of tongue-in-cheek.” Caroline Smailes, Friday Project author, ‘In Search of Adam’.
