Detective Constable Lawson begins his first day as an officer in Dóchas Scotland, a place the locals romantically refer to as Hope Town. He's done his research and knows about the weird and wonderful things that go on there, and that makes him determined to join the small, overstretched police force.
Join DC Lawson on his first day as he meets legendary Detective Inspector Pontius Smith and is involved in his first bizarre and, in this case, itchy case.
This is an introduction to the Hope Town series of short stories which already includes The Devil's Pâtissier , Ever Vigilant(e), First Contact: Take Two and Bingo Royale.
Think X-Files meets Twin Peaks but with more tiny biting insects.
