Set in 1960's Peckham. Strudwick runs his French polish and German sausage company as a benign proprietor, and his sudden removal from the company creates a vacuum which sets off a chain of events that could result in financial ruin. But the staff unexpectedly rise to the occasion as they fight for their survival.
A quirky story of greed and incompetence, garnished with romance and deviousness. You'll never eat a curry again without giggling.

The first of four novels that trace the fortunes of Peckham's residents. Told over 29 chapters, spanning 259 pages, Strudwick's Successor will make you think twice about eating out.
