Publisher's Summary

A chance meeting with a mysterious elderly man....

Who is Old Tom? A sad and lonely fusspot? Or a forgotten figure whose bewildering deductive abilities hint at something more? Does he ever leave his armchair? Why is he only ever seen or heard by engaging local newspaper reporter Trench? And what surprising secret are the Mayflower Court Flats really hiding? 

Come on a challenging yet comfortable investigation. Can you solve the mystery without leaving your armchair...?

Wonderful performance! So fun to listen.

Clever, quaint and light, this little mystery is light-hearted yet touches on all points of intrigue - sex, jewels, betrayal, a Holmes-esque sleuth and a beleaguered journalist. What truly separates this from the pack is the performance. Just the right music intervals, great character voices and acting. Clever and cute. I really enjoyed it. Heading off to buy the next one in the series. Heartily recommend!
