Imagine Philip Marlowe woke up one day with the mother of all hangovers and discovered he'd been turned into a Glaswegian. And not only that but he's saddled with a partner in the shape of his devious fat friend, The Bumble. Well, that's how our Narrator feels. After finding a dead man hanging from a door, discovering a stash of Nazi memorabilia, and surviving a run-in with a psychotic hoodlum, the Narrator is in no mood for any more nonsense. The Bumble's explanations involving the mysterious flight of Rudolph Hess to Scotland, a deceased Glasgow car dealer, and a hoard of Nazi gold just don't ring true. The Bumble's End is a black, humourous tale of greed, death and toffees in the run up to Christmas. Femmes fatales, old Nazis, missing gold and a Rottweiler called Tango chase through the pages. Also on the trail are three unwise men watched over by a corrupt cop with a head cold. The Season of Goodwill just doesn't get any more funpacked than this.
