There was nothing unusual about the barrel-organ man who walked into private detective Louie Knight's office. Apart from the fact that he had lost his memory. And his monkey was a former astronaut on the Welsh Space Programme. And he carried a suitcase that he was too terrified to open. And he wanted a murder investigated. The only thing unusual about that was, it took place a hundred years ago. And he needed it solved by the following week. Louie was too smart to take a case like that but also too broke to turn it down. Soon he is lost in a labyrinth of intrigue and terror, tormented at every turn by a gallery of mad nuns, gangsters and waifs and haunted by the loss of his girlfriend, Myfanwy, who disappeared one day after being fed drugged raspberry ripple In The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Aberystwyth Louie's hunt for Myfanwy takes him to the limits of his own endurance and brings him face-to-face with things no man should ever have to see.
