    It is May in Aberystwyth, and the mayoral election campaign - culminating in the traditional boxing match between candidates - is underway. Sospan the ice-cream seller waits in his hut for souls brave enough to try his latest mind-expanding new flavour, and Louie Knight, Aberystwyt's only Private Detective, receives a visit from a mysterious stranger called Raspiwtin asking him to track down a dead man. Twenty-five years ago Iestyn Probert was hanged for his part in the notorious raid on the Coliseum cinema, but shortly afterwards he was seen, apparently alive and well, boarding a bus to Aberaeron. Did he miraculously evade the hangman's noose? Or could there really be substance to the rumours that he was resuscitated by aliens? Now, as strange lights are spotted in the sky above Aberystwyth and a farmer claims to have had a close encounter with a lustful extraterrestrial, Iestyn Probert has been sighted once again. But what does Raspiwtin want with him? And why does Loui' s investigation arouse unwelcome interest from a shadowy government body and a dark-suited man in a black 1947 Buick?

    Schoolboys are disappearing all over Aberystwyth and nobody knows why. Louie Knight, the town's private investigator, soon realises that it is going to take more than a double ripple from Sospan, the philosopher cum ice-cream seller, to help find out what is happening to these boys and whether or not Lovespoon, the Welsh teacher, Grand Wizard of the Druids and controller of the town, is more than just a sinister bully. And just who was Gwenno Guevara?

    The hilarious sequel to ABERYSTWYTH MON AMOUR To Dean Morgan, who teaches at the Faculty of Undertaking, it is just a place to get course materials. But worlds collide when the Dean checks into the notorious bed and breakfast ghetto - a dark labyrinth of druid speakeasies and toffee-apple dens, where every spinning wheel tells the story of a broken heart - and mistakenly receives a suitcase intended for a ruthless druid assassin. Soon he is running for his life, his heart hopelessly in thrall to a porn star known as Judy Juice. Once again, Louie Knight, the town's only private eye, is called upon to make sense of it all. He knows that to find the Dean, he has to discover what was in the druid's case. It turns out to be something so evil it makes even the hard-boiled gumshoe gasp
