THE GREATEST PRIZE AT THE LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS ISN’T GOLD
...IT’S THE HOLY GRAIL.

There’s a rumour there’s treasure buried beneath the 2012 Olympic site. And that a secret army is going to find it. Only nobody believes it. But when a mysterious group of pirates move to the East End, people become suspicious.And when Cockneys start disappearing, the Pearly King demands answers. But that’s the least of Oscar’s worries – all he wants to do is kill some cockroaches.The problem is, he’s using a chemical weapon to do it. And he has to get rid of it before the police find out.

A funny, fast, mad-cap whodunit Cockney caper involving pirates, pie and mash, Pearly Kings, and the best idea ever for getting round the smoking ban.

REVIEWS FROM AMAZON READERS:

Moira Farrell gave it 5 stars. 

I liked this daft book a lot, actually made me laugh out loud in a couple of places, but that could just be my sense of humor.

I know my place gave it 4 stars. 

Amusing. Wiity. Highly inventive. More than a bit mad. Cockneys, a Mockney, pirates, FBI and the Olympics. What is there not to like? Highly readable story of ..well…cockneys, a mockney, pirates, FBI and the Olympics. There is no point in even trying to explain this book. Just read it. You won’t be able to put it down. Robert Rankin. The Goons. A bit of Python, Round The Horne, I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again for a few references as to what to expect.

TJ Howes gave it 4 stars

Very well written in a natural and easy flow. Just my level of daftness. Having read pretty much everything Robert Rankin has written I was looking for someone in a similar vein. Might just have found it. Only reason for four stars and not five is I feel there is more to be told.


BOOK TRAILER…

Shot in one day during the Olympics.
