Little Jack Horner

Peter Kalu

A young Asian man is stabbed to death in an alleyway in an unnamed Northern Town on a dark, wet night. There are no witnesses and there is no apparent motive. Delroy Johnson, of Johnson Private Investigations Bureau is called in by the young man’s family, frustrated at the slow police progress. Delroy Johnson is part time church caretaker, part time womaniser, some time investigator. More used to chasing down infidelity cases, he agrees to do what he can to catch the killer. A strong suspect emerges, but with little solid evidence, Johnson tries to draw him into the open. A deadly cat and mouse game ensues.
