Limey Gumshoe: The true-life adventures of an undercover detective

Will Randall

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Travel writing

Randall travels to the US gives us his hilarious perspective on the nation that invented the modern-day gumshoe.

House-sitting in Boston one winter, Will Randall picks up with one of his more disreputable travel buddies, Jack J. Makepeace, and life gets a great deal more exciting.

Makepeace introduces Randall to his current employers, Chestnut Investigations, and soon Will finds himself appointed apprentice Private Investigator. He tails mongrels and errant husbands, attends a seminar on Blood Spatter and is recruited in a lapdancing club by an anti-government go-go girl. Then emotional stakes are suddenly raised when Will Randall, unlikely Limey Gumshoe, finds himself investigating the disappearance of a sixteen-year-old girl from her affluent home, and fighting to save a vulnerable boy from the housing projects from a miscarriage of justice.

With his latest adventures in Limey Gumshoe, Will Randall gives us an often hilarious, sometimes scary, eye-opening perspective on the bizarre world of private investigation.
