Heads You Lose by Rob Johnson
"A highly entertaining, well-constructed screwball comedy that is as enjoyable as it is well written." - Keith Nixon for Big Al's Books and Pals
The assignment in Greece might have been the answer to Trevor and Sandra’s problems except for one thing. Someone was trying to frame them for murder... with a watermelon.
‘Money for old rope,’ Sandra had said when they accepted the job of looking after the ageing Marcus Ingleby at his villa in Greece, but when a neighbour brings a gift for the old man, the prospect of spending most of the rest of their lives in a Greek prison becomes a terrifying reality.
Meanwhile, Ingleby has problems of his own. During his seventy-odd years, his cupboard has accumulated plenty of skeletons, one of which is about to be rattled by a couple of ex-cons and a retired police inspector from his murky past.
'Heads You Lose' is the sequel to 'Lifting the Lid' and the second book in the ‘Lifting the Lid’ series, featuring Sandra Gray, Trevor Hawkins and his incorrigible dog, Milly.
About The Author...
‘You’ll have to write an author biography of course.’
‘Because people will want to know something about you before they lash out on buying one of your books.’
‘You think so, do you?’
‘Just do it, okay?’
‘So what do I tell them?’
‘For a start, you should mention that you’ve written four plays that were professionally produced and toured throughout the UK.’
‘Should I say anything about all the temp jobs I had, like working in the towels and linens stockroom at Debenhams or as a fitter’s mate in a perfume factory?’
‘No, definitely not.’
‘Motorcycle dispatch rider?’
‘You were sacked weren’t you?’
‘Boss said he could get a truck there quicker.’
‘Leave it out then, but make sure they know that “Quest for the Holey Snail” is the third book you’ve written.’
‘It’s very different from "Lifting the Lid" and "Heads You Lose".’
‘Doesn’t matter. And don’t forget to put in something that shows you’re vaguely human.’
‘You mean this kind of thing: “I’m currently in Greece with my wife, Penny, two cats and five rescue dogs and working on a fourth novel and a couple of screenplays”.’
‘It’ll have to do, I suppose.'
