A Pack Of Saftness is a spoof detective novel set in a fictitious Black Country republic, independent of England, known affectionately as the BC. A Pack of Saftness introduces Inspector H McDonald – Riffy H – head of homicide of the BCPD.
The caper follows Riffy H as he pursues a serial killer who is wasting members of the local ecological group Green Henry like it is going out of fashion and the fact the local crime syndicate are involved in a cultural exchange with the New York mafia only clouds the issue.
A Pack Of Saftness, being part one of The Pantechnicon, is… a right ruddy pack of saftness.
