Ladies in Lavender

by Shaun McKenna

Brighton, April 1963: London’s been rocked by the murder of gangland boss, Roscoe Crabbe. The police are searching for prime suspect, Stanley Stubbers and his girlfriend, Rachel Crabbe – Roscoe’s sister. The lovers are hiding out, waiting to rendezvous and flee to Australia.

In Brighton a party is interrupted - Roscoe’s fiancé Pauline is celebrating her engagement to Alan. Francis, Roscoe’s minder says the boss is outside and wants back his £6,000.

Except, Roscoe isn’t Roscoe and Francis is far from a hard man minder. The permanently ravenous Francis gets himself a second job (with Stanley). All he needs to do is just make sure that the boss(es) stay happy. How hard can that be?
