Publisher's Summary

London, 2044. Britain is a republic. President Jan Polak has vanished overnight from Buckingham Palace, just weeks before an election. Has he been kidnapped? Or even killed? One man is determined to find out - as soon as he's had his breakfast. His name is Pond. Howie Pond - the president's official spokesperson and wannabe secret agent.
With just a love of James Bond films to guide him, Howie sets out on a mission to solve the missing-president mystery. But with his journalist girlfriend, Britt, soon onto the story, the race is on to see who gets to the truth first.

Amusing

Cute story set in 2044 England, which is now a republic after revolution sends the royal family to exile in Florida. A bit of cozy mystery, a bit of farce. Gildart Jackson’s narration is terrific, as always.

Absolutely Brilliant

Loved it. Listened to it twice over in quick succession and will probably listen again when book 4 is released.
The silly humour is intensified by Gildart's narration.
Loads of light hearted fun in this story.
