The year is 1983. A Nottingham estate agent is missing. With the police showing little interest in finding her husband, the estate agent’s wife hires private detective Matt Crawford to search for him.

Still suffering from the trauma, Matt, with the help of his assistant, an ex-reporter who covered the story of his stabbing, begins to uncover the truth behind the missing man. With his three great loves, his ginger cat Desmond, his old VW beetle and his assistant Kate, can Matt find out what really happened?
