Carsfold has recently opened its new theatre and the Town's Women's Guild is to present its first live performances - the pantomime 'Jack and the Beanstalk' - over Christmas. DI Harry Falconer has managed to duck two days spent over the festive season in the Carmichael household by pleading other commitments, but treating the whole family, himself included, to tickets to the first performance, on Boxing Day. But he seems to be able to do nothing straight forward, and when tragedy strikes in the very first Act, he is catapulted back into his professional role with a vengeance: and on a Bank Holiday, too.

“What? Puccini isn't a green vegetable?” Dumb the populace down and one can sell anything. Who needs Chopin and Mozart when there are Britney Spears, Michael Bolton and Kenny G? Why dine on penne con fungi when Hamburger Helper and Hungry Man frozen dinners are available? Got white merlot to sell, no problem! Got a war to sell, no problem! Fill the local news broadcasts with the latest celebrity gossip, NASCAR results and fear of foreigners, all the while repeating "Shut up and shop!" the preferred subliminal command. Provide Mammoth-sized shopping carts to transport the oversized haul to the gargantuan SUV, the only thing large enough to deliver the inflated modern-day shopper and its truckload of heavily processed food-- "Obey and consume!" As with the relationship between the Morlocks and the Eloi, keep the populace placated, well fed, and most importantly, dumbed-down and supreme power is at hand, at least that's the view of master detective Nigel Strange's latest villain. But is it too late? Can the horror be stopped? Is the Red State plague (RSP) the great pestilence that will finally erode the American fabric? Is recruiting Nigel Strange, with his stunning powers of deduction, the answer? Can Strange find the culprit, a ruthless culture-thief, and rescue the US? In Kenneth Frawley's new book, The Astonishing & True Tale of the Missing American Culture revel in the fascinating, side-splitting story of America's cultural distress and how Victorian detective Nigel Strange is recruited to rescue a distraught nation.

Inventive and satirical, Kenneth Frawley's The Astonishing & True Tale of the Missing American Culture is the fascinating, side-splitting story of America's cultural distress and how Victorian detective Nigel Strange is recruited to rescue a distraught nation. It's an influential work of modern fiction that compels readers to put in the open their own values and ponder American culture, and the roles corporate and political entities have had upon it. With a ridiculously clever spin on the classic detective novel, as device, the book is a literary tour de force that humorously expresses Frawley's perceptive and relevant assessment of American culture.
