London in the late 1980s - the era of Thatcherism and Loadsamoney - is an exciting but sometimes dangerous place to live. Fitzroy Maclean Angel gets by partly through gigging as a jazz trumpet player, partly through taking illegal fares in his de-registered black taxi cab, and partly through ... well, just being in the right place at the right time. And, as he often says himself, it's better to be lucky than good. In Angel Hunt, his third ecapade, Angel has an old university friend drop in on him - quite literally, as he plummets to his death through a skylight window! And that's just the start of Angel's troubles, as he gets his arm twisted by the police to help with their enquiries into a group of animal rights activists, who might just have something rather more deadly on their minds than a bit of foxhunt sabotage ... Back in print for the first time in a decade are the first three titles in Mike Ripley's acclaimed 'Angel' series of comic crime novels. Each title contains a specially-written introduction by the author.
