Roland Darvelle's guide books are a real must-have for those looking for the perfect weekend break.

Most of the hotels, pubs and inns that travel writer Darvelle visits across the UK are jolly nice... but others are not. They have toilets that don't flush, beds made of toy bricks and bath towels as rough as crisps. Others hold secrets and lies, intrigue and murder...

When Darvelle and his son Ray visit The Dog's Bollocks hotel (so named to appeal to sufer dudes) they soon find themselves caught up in a race against time to stop a serial killer.
