From the publishers:

When a woman is attacked in a city car park the staff of Faraday Finance, whose offices overlook the car park, fall under suspicion – in particular Brian Heath, who has been picked out at an identification parade and whose first wife died under mysterious circumstances. At first he seems to have an alibi on the night in question, however, Inspector Rudkin is certain of Heath’s guilt. As the investigation intensifies, the case becomes more complex as the alibis of both his co-worker Ronnie and their boss Morley are called into doubt and everyone’s motivations are called into qeustion before a startling incident brings matters to an unexpected denoucement.

Eric Chappell took up full time writing in 1973 after his first stage play The Banana Box was produced at the Apollo Theatre, London. The play later inspired the classic TV comedy Rising Damp, winner of the BAFTA award for best situation comedy. In 1979 Eric’s screen version won the Evening Standard Film Award for best comedy. Other television successes include The Squirrels, The Bounder, Home to Roost (all of which won PYE TV awards), Only When I Laugh, Duty Free, Singles, Fiddlers Three and Haggard.

Eric has written over 200 television comedy and more than twenty stage plays which are performed worldwide, including We’re Strangers Here, Last of the Duty Free, The Night in Question and the thriller Dead Reckoning. He is unquestionably one of the top writers of comedy in Britain today.
