Michaelmas Week 0
The last time Detective James Macaroni saw the evil drug baron Walnut Sanchez, it was at the centre of the earth.
Years later, in a town full of cops who don’t play by the rules, Macaroni’s obsessive respect for due process makes him the greatest maverick of all… Still haunted by his past, investigates a spate of missing persons - but as the witnesses pile up, it seems all is not as it seems. Or so it seems…
Like a psychic at a salsa class, Sanchez is always one step ahead. Slowly, Macaroni meanders to redemption, but not before meeting a whole host of offbeat characters: a couple of country club toffs; a mad old lady hellbent on wasting police time; a charity worker with the unfortunate voice of an evil genius; and many, many more. It’s all quite weird. But we think you’ll like it.
