The Decoy

Author: Al Ramsay

Trainee journalist Felix Haythornthwaite’s chance encounter with a beautiful woman at Preston station, rapidly spirals from awkward schmoozing opportunity into a hilarious one-way ticket to calamity, plunging him head-first into a life-or-death struggle involving a cut-throat crime cartel, a kick-ass tribal princess… and an overdose of industrial-strength laxatives. The story is a nailed-on ‘exclusive’, but will Felix live long enough to break it?

“Terrific – full of thrills, high jinks and Lancashire charm.”
