They take place variously in fashionable ski resorts in Switzerland- a prestigious language school in Cambridge- an ocean going yacht- a ditch in woodland- David Bowies private residence in the Canton de Vaud- the den of a terrorist cell in Holland- mermaids off St Davids Head in Wales- the tossing of the caber at the Highland Games in Scotland- all accompanied by tastings from the finest cellars, making for a very heady brew! Armed and Dangerous, the title story of the collection, is a hilaroius black novella on the suthors military service in the pulverized, beleaguered city of Berlin during the Cold War. The tales are topped off with authentic Celtic Triads and a triumphant Ode to the Welsh Leek.
