DEADLINE by Tim Heald


Email this review


Meek, bungling Simon Bognor, that ""impatient and cowardly, squeamish and utterly straightforward"" Board of Trade investigator, makes his third appearance here when Fleet Street gossip columnist St. John Derby turns up a corpse in his office. Having infiltrated the Daily Globe staff, Simon pubcrawls with Milly, Molly, Willy and Bertie as he digs into the unsavory past of a bisexual blackmailer. Flimsy whimsy, albeit a jolly enough change of pace.
