'LEMON' BACK COVER BLURB: Spencer was an insignificant Data Input Operator and this suited him fine. However, when he is mistaken for someone actually significant, due to a mix-up by the Post Office, then his life becomes complicated. By complicated we're talking murder, sex, violence, car chases, beautiful women, and an annoyed fat cat (both of the feline* and big business variety). A week in Spence’s life usually consisted of nothing more than dull, repetitive, time-wasting tedium. This week was going to be different and Spence wasn’t going to like it one little bit.
* Just to add some extra zest to this ‘Lemon’, you can read all about Spence’s love-hate relationship with his feline nemesis in ‘Eric’s Tale’ at the end of the book.
THE AUTHORS SAYS: ‘Lemon’ is a comedy thriller. Or is it an action adventure? Or is it romantic science fiction? Or perhaps it’s a searing allegory of the state of world today? To be honest, it’s probably not the last one. My own personal diet of reading when I was a youngster was to devour several ‘Doctor Who’ books a week, the sort that Terrance Dicks wrote so well. There is, I hopes, that sort of quality in ‘Lemon’; something that makes you turn the page, that makes you care for plot and character (however far-fetched) and something that transports you away from reality whilst also being grounded in it. The story is hung on that staple of Alfred Hitchcock movies where an everyman, not a hero, is thrown into a dangerous situation quite by accident and has to cope with something unexpectedly extraordinary. It’s not ground-breaking, it’s not biting satire, it’s not overtly-intellectual but it is a rollicking good read with sense of fun throughout and a few chuckles and surprises thrown in for good measure. Try a slice. I think you’ll like it.
