LITTLE MICKEY by David Bennett


In the quiet town of Oswestry, a power cut has the town in darkness. The police have been hunting a murderer for fifteen months and finally catch their man. The problem is, he’s not all he seems. Will they get their answers before his solicitor arrives?

Dr. Broom – Psychologist. Over 40

Supt. Martin Davies – Alan’s superior, willing to help, but very careful to cover his tracks. Over 50
