Description - Follow My Leader by John Hughes


Alive and well and living in Reigate in 1951?
Surely not . . .
Rowena Furse and Erika von Tirpitz are unlikely
friends. Rowena loves gardening and opera -
Erika loves gin and men. Despite their differing
lifestyles, they have something in common -
Mr Morell, an elderly German refugee they
have taken under their wing.
One afternoon, led astray by Erika, the usually
teetotal Mr Morell drinks some gin and, whilst
under the influence, makes an astonishing confession.
The revelation sparks a chain of bizarre events -
mistaken identity, mayhem at Reigate carnival, and
even murder. The trail stretches from leafy Surrey to
the Canary Islands and back.
Is Morell's claim genuine, or is he, in Erika's words, just
`plain bonkers'?
Ben Grimshaw, cub reporter on the Surrey Mirror, tries
to fathom it all out. But it takes his Fleet Street
journalist brother, Storm, to unravel the truth.
Ultimately, all roads lead to the old fort on top of
Reigate Hill.
