Multiple tasks beset a Bath painter and private eye.Chris Honeysett
is having a bad day. His painting is not going well and wind and
rain have poked holes in his roof. In order to raise the cash to
fix it, he agrees to tail James Lane for Griffin Insurance to prove
he's faking injuries to defraud the company. Following Lane into
the local, he's approached by two teens who insist they overheard
someone planning to murder a man named Albert and a nosey
witchy-woman. Then someone steals Chris's car, and when it's found
there's a dead gent curled up in the back seat. Albert? No one
knows, and before Chris can find out, he has a phone call from a
distraught mum insisting that someone's abducted her son and Chris
needs to look into it. The kidnappers want him to burgle Barry
Telfer's house, empty his safe and exchange its contents for the
boy. With some illegal help from his squeeze Annis and her
alternate lover Tim, Chris opens the safe, but he's robbed of its
contents and has to commit two more break-ins to appease the
kidnappers. Meanwhile, the witchy-woman gets bashed; the local
constabulary turn up everywhere Chris goes; and he gets saddled
with an orphaned cat. It's just one MacGuffin after another before
the crimes, criminals and lovers sort themselves
out.Self-deprecating Chris (Slim Chance, 2006) is a charmer, and
this is the most sophisticated bit of slapstick to come along in
ages. (Kirkus Reviews)
For Chris Honeysett, artist and private investigator, autumn
threatens to bring down more than just the roof of his studio. A
stormy October in the City of Bath forms the backdrop to Aqua
Investigation's strangest case yet. When Chris downs brushes to
take on what looks like a simple surveillance job he soon finds
himself in a frightening world of murder, abduction and blackmail.
Dark times often require extraordinary solutions, why else would
Honeysett suddenly find himself on the wrong side of the law?
Unexpected cracks are beginning to show in his private life too,
just when the triangle that is Chris, Tim and Annis should be
working together to keep them all out of jail. In "Rainstone Fall"
first impressions count for nothing and all appearances are
