Add to this a man's body found in a remote wartime pillbox, a suspected abduction and date rape of a student by a sleazebag making porn films, illegal immigrants working on farms and an enigmatic American airman, and Dryden finds himself with a lot of bizarre links to investigate if he is to keep a promise to Maggie and to scoop the press pack for a front page lead.
You'll need to pay attention at the back as to who did what to whom. But within pages you'll be convinced that you're in Laura's claustrophobic hospital room or bumping along bleak Cambridgeshire roads in the back of taxi driver Humph's Ford Capri in the searing heat. Humph is an unconventional taxi driver with his cramped two-door car, his unwillingness to leave its confines, and the fact that Dryden is one of his very few customers.
The others, such as they are, appear to be people travelling to Stanstead Airport who pay Humph in miniature bottles of alcohol which sustain our heroes during their adventures. The book has some slightly disconcerting point of view wobbles, but not enough to throw you out of the story.
And once or twice I felt Kelly's oddball characters were verging on the stereotypical, such as the press pack who descend on the area once a murder hunt has been announced. This isn't a roll-around the floor, 'nurse, my sides' sort of book.
