Percy's Predicament. A tale of love between the balance sheets.

Percy's Predicament is a tale of love, crime, mystery and intrigue set in a firm of accountants in 1960s Bournemouth.

The main character, Percy Bashford, finds himself torn between seeking a lost love from his teen years, and a very real romance with a fellow worker. But life is never simple, and soon Percy finds himself caught up in much more serious matters than his complicated love life.

It is available in paperback and ebook formats from Amazon.
