James Pattinson / Gordon Griffin

The search for Arnie Walker was not a job that Sam Grant was particularly keen to undertake. But Miss Gloriana Goldstar was so pressing in her demand that he should do so, and Cynara Jones was so ardent in her support, that it became impossible to refuse. Besides, business was slack and Miss Goldstar was generous with her money... A trip to Amsterdam seemed a pleasant enough prospect but when there are people there intent on bringing your life to an abrupt end, the experience becomes rather less than enjoyable. All he was doing was trying to find Mr Walker and urge him to return to Miss Goldstar's loving arms. How was he to foresee that, in the process, he would upset so many other people and with such deadly consequences?

But his youngest son still believes in Santa Clause and while his daughter's reading Jackie, she's not even a teenager yet.

When the four junior Hopkins start to choose their own, unexpected paths in life, though, Billy finds it harder than usual to see the funny side of things...
