Sowerbutt's Punch

Racing up the steps to the delivery office, Spagfhetti saw Spano frog-marching a bewildered worker out of the warehouse. A single punch from One-Line floored another man who was swinging a crowbar.  

Sowerbutt's Lorry

Spaghetti leapt down from the back of the Bedford MW lorry as it backed towards the dock inside Shapiro’s warehouse on East Ferry Road. Panda, One-Line, Cocker, Spano and Jaksie quickly followed.

Sowerbutt's Worry

Bracken sipped his champagne. “We haven’t got much time, Sorbay. The sooner the Russkies get hold of the letter, the sooner they’ll entangle themselves with Jerry and their bombers will fly east. The Old Man is worried about the effect of the Blitz on our war economy – and the British people, of course.”

Sowerbutt's Letter

“His Majesty was very excited when he heard news of the second letter from the English. He ordered a Savoia-Marchetti airliner for me. An escort of Fiat Arrows from Tirana."  

Sowerbutt's Harbour

Sitting outside his favourite café overlooking Mandraki Harbour, the colonnello from the 2nd Blackshirt Division smiled at his glass of Chevalier de Rodos.

Sowerbutt's Scandal

For once, Brendan Bracken was taken by surprise. “French champagne in Luton, I don’t believe it.” Sowerbutt grinned: “May I introduce Maxwell Mercy, manager of The George, late of the Dorchester.” He made no mention of Mercy’s hurried exit from the Mayfair hotel after a scandal with a duke’s daughter. 

Sowerbutt's Body

Shining their torches into the hole, Spaghetti and Panda could see the head of a large middle-aged man. The face was black and blue.
