Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Victor Green is 37, unmarried and works at the tax office. He lives alone and is the sort of man who irons his underpants. When Victor receives a letter from the council telling him to prune a lime tree in his front garden, he is anxious to oblige, although he is not much of a gardener and does not like heights. A disgruntled pigeon startles him and he falls from the tree, landing on a passer by. It takes a while for the police to discover that the victim is Tommy Hewson, a gangster generally known as Gruesome. The local paper misprints Victor's name, calling him Vincent Green, the name used by international hit-man Vincenzo Verdi. Expecting a turf war, two local gangs, the Pretty Boys and the Blues Brothers, embark on a campaign of destruction - both calling on the helpless Victor/Vincent to help. Inheriting Grusome's poodle, Fluffy, dubbed the Angle of Death, and pursued by a policeman's daughter, Victor's life is turned upside down. Making friends and enemies along the way, as well as leaving a trail of bodies in his wake, Victor's thrilling adventure will appeal to all crime fiction fans and leave you laughing out loud.
