About The Author
When I was a boy and dad came to stay, he would sit on the edge of my bed and send me to sleep with his stories. I best remember the tale of him sailing the high seas in a boat called the Flamingo. His captain was a smelly man called Beamish. Dad bought uniforms for the motley crew, to make them look more professional, but the order got mixed-up and they all came on deck dressed like captains. Then Beamish, or somebody, set the boat on fire and that was the end of that adventure. My dad was an old man and he’d lived a sensational life. His name was Billy Hill and, in his day, he was Britain’s criminal mastermind.
