When a hamster is stolen, Billy Bones, lackadaisical part-time private detective and full time drinker, finds himself caught between MI5 and the CIA, but Billy just wants to get the hamster back.
Hamsters! is a thrilling tale of intrigue and adventure, a delightful story of friendship, and a rather silly account of a lost hamster. Set entirely in the town of Bedford and mostly in the pub.
I will begin by describing my employer, Billy Bones.
In order to describe Billy I must describe his mother, and in order to describe his mother I must tell you a little of his maternal grandmother. So bear with me.
Billy's grandmother, Eliza Moore, married Harvey Bones shortly before he went away to fight in the Second World War. Not long before he left she became pregnant and the baby was born while he was fighting in Egypt.
