Blotto, Twinks and the Stars of the Silver Screen

(2017)
(The seventh book in the Blotto, Twinks series)
A novel by

 
Another hair-raising adventure featuring the aristocratic brother and sister sleuthing duo!

The end of the cricket season spells gloom for Blotto until he is invited to bat against the Hollywood cricket team out in sunny LA, where rain never stops play. And so begins the latest adventure for Blotto and his supremely gifted sister, Twinks. Although their mother, the Dowager Duchess of Tawcester, keeps a strict rein on her two children, she knows America is full of wealthy young men, all of whom will fall in love with her daughter - and marriage to a Texan millionaire would solve the Tawcester financial problems once and for all. So, accompanied by trusty chauffeur Corky Froggett, the intrepid siblings head out to California.

On arrival in Hollywood, they are invited to a glitzy party, where they are introduced to a firmament of Hollywood stars, directors and gossip columnists. But the mood of the party suddenly curdles with the breaking news that beautiful starlet Mimsy La Pim - the (former) love of Blotto's life - has been kidnapped. And Blotto is determined to make it his personal mission to rescue her.

But in the world of old-fashioned cricket matches, gigantic Hollywood egos, filmmaking disasters and merciless crooks, it soon falls to Twinks to rescue her brother from the various messes he creates when attempting to rescue his damsel in distress. Will the siblings ever get back to Tawcester Towers - or will it be a case of death before wicket?
