This is not your run of the mill book. It is a totally silly tale, but well told and a thoroughly good read. The humour is at times quirky (or worse!). Terry hears screams from Kim-Ly, the girl downstairs. He investigates - and soon wonders if he should have minded his own business. With a couple of bodies, plus a vicious gangster, two policemen and his ex on his trail his wondering is reinforced. It adds to the enjoyment to have heard of Tommy Cooper, Randall and Hopkirk (deceased) and other references (or google them!), but it isn't necessary to the story. The ending is, like the rest of the book, not quite what was expected, but satisfying. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0755207513, Paperback)

"Don't get involved; you're there to report what is happening, not to change it." If only Terry Logan, the highly esteemed reporter for the Witness, had heeded the wise words of his mentor; then friends, lovers, acquaintances and strangers would have been contented with or resigned to their lot, oblivious to the alternatives. So, who were the unwitting characters in the crossfire, when that single impetuous act set life's dominoes a-tumbling? It all depends upon their perspective, I guess, whether they emerged from the mayhem as winners or losers, happy or unhappy; dead or alive! If only Terry had been stronger, followed his head and not his heart, then none of this would have happened; but then he'd never have met The Girl Downstairs ...
