Weekend in Weighton

By Terry Murphy

Fiction, Thriller, Crime, Comedy

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

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.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.

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’.
