David Hughes presents five intriguing short stories in which scheming and plotting are uniting themes. In 'Dragon Lady' a young boy is unwittingly used as a drugs mule by his manipulative grandmother; 'Jail Break' tells how a group of convicts were able to wrong-foot the British security services and carry out a ferocious terrorist attack in the heart of London; and in 'Miss Susan & Sian' a teenage girl turns person smuggler when she transports a Chinese boy back to England from Hong Kong. Coach travel may never have the same attraction after reading 'Murder on the 501 Coach'; and the final story, 'Cromwell the Return', explores how a modern-day military takeover might be what Britain needs before the corruption can be stopped and common sense once again prevails.
