Slim Chance

By Peter Helton

Private Investigator Chris Honeysett has a relatively simple case on his hands: find Billy the Tramp.

But despite Billy’s regular appearance on the streets of Bath, he’s nowhere to be seen – and no one seems to want to help Honeysett. And then there’s the ransom case dealing with an art theft and insurance company to worry about. At least his plight is better than the police’s…

Some weeks back, a body of a woman was found in Rainbow woods. Now another woman, Nikki Reid, has been abducted. The police are desperate to find her, fearing another victim on their hands. On a night walk looking for Billy, Honeysett stumbles into an abandoned train station but instead of finding Billy, he finds Nikki Reid – half-starved, dirty and frightened beyond all belief. According to the police, a man nicknamed “The Doctor” is behind the abductions. And as Honeysett soon finds out, The Doctor is not pleased that Honeysett took what was his…

Set in the beautiful and haunting Georgian city of Bath, Slim Chance is the brilliant second instalment of Peter Helton’s Chris Honeysett series – a thrilling and suspense-driven mystery with a chilling murderer. Perfect for fans of Graham Ison and Robert McCracken.

Originally from Germany, Peter Helton was once a translator for TV and film living in London. Later, he moved to the West Country to study among other things a fine art degree at UWE, Bristol. He now lives on the outskirts of Bath with his cat Asbo, writing and painting – his books include the Chris Honeysett series and DI Liam McLusky series.
