How to Deal with Sexual Deviation in a Small English Village
"How to deal with Sexual Deviation in a Small English Village" is a Black Comedy.
The author, Roy Gould, worked for TV comedy legend, David Croft OBE ("Dad''s Army"; "Hi de Hi"; "Allo Allo" etc.) for nearly 30 years at the BBC, making his way from 2rd Assistant Director to Director itself. Over those years he was given a free Masterclass in the art and craft of comedy writing by the best Producer/Writer in the business.
"How to deal..." is his first novel.
It is a mix between the TV Comedies of Perry & Croft and all those great Ealing comedies of the 1950's, such as "The Lady Killers" and "Kind hearts and Coronets"
The village’s matriarch, Chantry Bowman-Leggett, has a dilemma – Thirteen dead bodies have been found in the Old Rectory after attending a ‘Swingers party’. Does she call the police or would it be better for the village if the bodies were just made to disappear?
As well as dead bodies, there are secrets buried in the village.
And then Detective Inspector Lore comes sniffing around and even more drastic action is called for……
