Duffy’s latest clients: The thieves of Heathrow Airport
Down-and-out Duffy takes a stranger home from the pub for a one-night stand to take his mind off his scuffling private security business. But his bedmate surprises him with a job offer the next morning. Turns out Mr. Right Now is chummy with the freight thieves of Heathrow. The airport’s crooks pride themselves on their restraint, but someone has been pilfering much more than his share. The Heathrow hoods need a detective to find out who has been robbing them. The seedy, sly Duffy is the only man for such an absurd job. But when he baits his hook for the bad thieves, he lands something much more dangerous.

About The Author
Dan Kavanagh was born in County Sligo, Ireland, in 1946. After an uncompromising adolescence, he left Ireland when he was nineteen and roamed the world. He has been an entertainment officer on a Japanese supertanker, a waiter on roller skates at a drive-in eatery in Tucson, and a bouncer in a gay bar in San Francisco. He boasts of having flown light planes on the Colombian cocaine route, but all that is known for certain is that he was once a baggage handler at Toronto International Airport. He lives in Islington, North London, and works in jobs that (with mild paranoia) he declines to specify.
