MoreSet in and around the small, rural town of Tinton in the South of England, the Alfie Bowman Novellas tell the story of Alfie Bowman, a 50 years old, 5ft 9inches tall, slightly overweight and not particularly fit human being. He’s a pretty average looking guy who hasn’t lost his hair yet, but knows what its like to be developing a wide parting!He is what you might call a refugee from an unhappy life, having spent most of it trying to be the person he believed everyone else wanted him to be. But then, two years ago he finally split from his cheating wife Gloria. Her philandering has left him with trust issues regarding both women and so-called ‘friends’ who cheated on him, but nonetheless hes determined to embark on a new start where he can try to be who he really is.His ambition for his new life is to become the writer hes always wanted to be, but all that seems to happen is he keeps getting drawn into situations where he feels he has to help, even though, as he says himself, he’s nothing special, definitely nothing like Superman, and very much the unlikely hero!This volume, The Story So Far, is a collection of numbers 2 - 5 in the on-going Alfie Bowman series, and includes Missing Without Trace’, ‘An Unnecessary Murder’, ‘Who Kidnapped Billy Bumble’, and A Handsome Stranger’.Join Alfie and a range of characters (from the sublime to the ridiculous) as he gets drawn into a series of different situations that test his resolve, courage and patience! And, of course, you also get to follow the course of his ‘will they, won’t they’ relationship with gorgeous and mysterious neighbour Sophia.These stories were never intended to be great literature - they were written to entertain and as such they are a mixture of mystery, romance, friendship, joy, sorrow, and no small amount of humour.Whatever you do, don’t take this collection seriously! Treat it as the fun read it was always meant to be and you won’t be disappointed.
