James needs to use all his cunning and diplomacy on his posh mum not only to get what he wants, but also to get her to lighten up. Here's a snippet:
"James, don’t you dare speak to me like that! Just wait till I tell your father.”
“Tell him ‘bout what exactly?”
SILENCE! He knew he’d rattled her. Eventually James began to speak, not to his mother but to himself, a stage-whisper once again of a list of things his mum needed to tell his dad about, when he got home from his trip. Tuesday 23rd May he began…
~ Panic response to blood on son’s T-shirt, the result of which was….
~ Driving on highway still dressed in dressing gown
~ Dangerous driving on same highway, almost causing multiple accidents!
~ Road rage – would have had to be seen to be believed!
~ Breaking traffic rules, many rules!
~ Being pulled over by cops then giving them a sob story about son’s accident
~ Eventually being rescued by thugs, louts, lower-class citizens – choose your own definition!
~ Broken promise about a bike ride with a lower-class citizen
“Do you HAVE to go on James? You’ve made your point. Besides, that’s blackmail you know,” she said tiredly.
"Merely stating facts,” he replied laconically. He was almost enjoying himself. James’ mum was outraged, but at the same time she was beginning to recognize some attributes in her son that she’d never recognized before. This kind of rhetoric would beat the President of the United States into submission! She’d never heard him reason so convincingly…or, so cunningly!
How did all this come about? What's going to happen now? Would you have managed to do what James did?

Can you solve the mystery lurking in the tunnels of the London Underground before Dick Turnpike does? Have you the answers to the “vague” letter in Mrs Abigail Parsons’ possession since the death of her Professor Uncle who fought in World War 1 but died in World War 2?
Dick Turnpike, the 12 year old history detective and tube train enthusiast, along with the help of his friend, Charlie Neasden, and the Underground Club caretaker, Ron Stanmore, are on the case. A possessed parrot, Goldhawk Junior, holds the key to the riddle. Through him the spirit of dead Goldhawk Senior communicates with the living world. The ghosts of the London Underground pose a threat but they are not enough to spook the hero of the book, Dick Turnpike.
The story is set in contemporary 21st century Britain against the backdrop of the interesting and amazing history of the world’s first subterranean railway system affectionately known as the “Tube”. In typical Charles Dickens fashion the story covers parts of London’s social history but where locations link with places on the London Underground map. As well as delving into the past, it touches on the issues and technical social media revolution affecting the younger generation today.
I’ve been inspired to write a mystery from the age of 12, which is when I read my first Agatha Christie novel, “By the Pricking of My Thumbs”. I read the book as I found out the school I was attending at the time was next door to the house in Sunningdale where Agatha Christie used to live. The house was called “Styles” and actually features in one of her book titles, “The Mysterious Affair at Styles”. Now as an adult and after a fascinating trip to the London Transport Museum and the purchase of Stephen Halliday’s “Underground To Everywhere” book, I thought I would mix the two and write a mystery set on the London Underground, but with a modern day twist.
