When inept private eye Veronica Blugden offers streetwise Fitzroy Maclean Angel a job, he is instantly suspicious. Until, that is, he learns that it involves working undercover for a brewery in darkest Kent, where bootlegging cheap beer from France is a growth industry. With his usual skill for being in the wrong place at the right time, Angel manages to infiltrate one gang of imaginative but amateur smugglers and comes up against another that is anything but amateur – especially when it comes to violence. And to top it all, he finds himself put in charge of a run-down country pub, where boosting the turnover should be dead easy – as long as he can press-gang a trio of fashion models into acting as barmaids …

This edition, published to celebrate the Angel series’ 25th Anniversary in August 2013, also includes the bonus Angel short story ‘Calling Cards’, unseen in print since its sole previous publication in 1992.
