‘No gentleman talks about his private life, but I must break this rule...’
An over-respectable shopkeeper in an English country town encounters a wheel clamper who accidentally dies.
He fears he will be accused of murder. To cover himself, he decides to avoid reporting the death and to investigate it himself.
The Gentleman Shopkeeper is his own politically incorrect account of his adventures. But he thinks there’s an important truth we must all remember. He did once score three runs in a school cricket-match! This is why we see three old cricket stumps on the cover...
His bowler hat and his briefcase are the other two main elements in the mystery which quickly engulfs him.
The Gentleman Shopkeeper doubles as an audio-script and is a mystery novel which will appeal to readers looking for a witty but thoughtful story.
