Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

When the daughter of a rich and powerful businesswoman goes missing from a country house estate, Detective Don is paid to track her down. Rugged and irascible, Don is an ex-cop who has set up shop in a fast-urbanising Essex countryside. He is also the unwilling owner of a robot butler, and as they investigate the disappearance this unlikely duo are forced together, battling criminal gangs, corrupt police, MI6, and international cybercrime.

Action-packed and full of twists, the tale is told by PArdew, a kind and unassuming robot. He yearns simply to perform his butler duties but soon finds himself solving crimes, avoiding kidnap, and trying to keep his Master safe from people who for security reasons cannot be named …and yes, there are plastic ducks and eggs which cause the blues …and yes, for blues read murder. Lucky for PArdew he’s connected to the Internet of Things.

As the investigation gathers pace Don discovers that behind one mystery there lurks a greater threat. No one is safe, not even PArdew…
