The Tour is a comedy drama adventure novel, underpinned by a sobering moral story. Its six leading characters will fully engage and delight the reader as their diverse and colourful personalities unfold and clash. The arrival of a dashing young Australian - the first ever professional at Crawford Cricket Club - brings both 'bonza' times and bother for his new colleagues. Stuey's new landlord, Bernard Gazelle, is a staid man three times his lodger's age who learns to cope with the demands of a young knave determined to have a good time - legal or otherwise. Meanwhile, Sammy the winsome wicketkeeper becomes infatuated with the new recruit and the outrageous antics of all concerned test the tolerance of stuffy club chairman Norman F. Billington to breaking point and beyond...The Tour is inspired by Peter Tinniswood, author of I Didn't Know You Cared and A Touch of Daniel. It will appeal to fans of comic fiction and the well-heeled English language.
