The Butchers Ball

What’s behind the bizarre string of suicides at Butchers, the top-notch London merchant bank? Could there be a connection with the Minx – the elusive lover that Butchers’ stalwart, Toby Slaker has been – quite literally – blind-dating? (through an Internet site where the dress code is a hood – and nothing else…)

Or with Scarlett, the neurotic virtual woman who inhabits the bank’s computer systems?

Or is it something to do with the inane TV programme, ‘The Hoodwink Show’?

When Butchers fall prey to a billion dollar ‘rogue trader’, it seems that everyone wants to take it over - not least Toby’s own high-flying City wife. And as the bank struggles to remain independent, and Toby’s secret sexual liaisons become ever more daring, only Will Cloud, the pot-smoking Irish detective from Brass Monkeys, can disentangle the plot and save the day.
