PI Dr Jake Flintlock and his sidekick Dr Bum Park are inveigled by American theatre director Chuck Cinzano into the investigation of a severed hand in a baseball glove on Primrose Hill, London. The assignment morphs into a murder case as Chuck is “stabbed to death” in Jake’s home. Having flown to Sausalito, CA, Jake and Bum begin to suspect they are being used as actors in a play. Yet, a real crime has been committed and somehow the culprit has to be found.

“I am obviously very excited by this response, it’s like a grand reward for all the hard work put into this novel” Paddy told us when we spoke to him over the phone. A spokesperson for Wings ePress told us that they have been getting numerous trade enquiries from a variety of sources regarding Hand In Glove. “The moment I picked up this novel, I knew it was going to be something different. Midway into the novel, I couldn’t keep up with my curiosity to know what was going to happen next and my human ability to turn pages swiftly. It’s a winner all the way.” – Kevin Peter who reviewed the book for Moterwriter.com shared with us.
