A simple errand that turns into a car accident, and Clifton bangs his head and blacks out. An unfortunate if not uncommon occurrence, even for the dashing colonel – until he wakes up to realise that his passenger, Jade, has vanished! When, the next morning, a mysterious ‘doctor’ calls at his house to tell him a fantastical story, the sceptical Clifton is soon dragged into a very unusual investigation. Oh, and the doctor’s name? Watson. Doctor Watson.
Hmm. Only ever seen one Clifton book before this one. Those Europeans have a strange idea about us British, you know!
As you might expect, tongue-in-cheek humour, action, time travelling(?) adventure and much more -and we're not talking The Murdoch Mysteries here! Great fun on a cold afternoon...this book, I mean.
