Summary
Larkin Mills is no ordinary town. A place of contradictions and enigma, a town once ruled by an enigmatic mafioso, full of secrets and mysteries. A place where Competitive Basket Weaving is the favourite sport, and the only hotel is a funeral parlour; a place with toad infestations and locust nests and strange things lurking in the sewers; a place with an exquisite ice cream parlour, and a lot of death. The extraordinary mystery in Larkin Mills begins to take shape. We meet apparently healthy Albert Dance, called a sickly child and booked into Larkin Mills' Hospital for Specially Ill Children. Then his neighbour Ivor, who observes strange goings on outside the Dances' house, and begins his own investigations - the presence of his oddball Aunt Morwenna and the looming memory of his deceased uncle spurring him on. Young Olive, who is given a battered accordion by her father, and unwittingly strikes a dreadful deal with an instrument repair man. Mr Morricone the town ice-cream seller, who has queues snaking around the block for his legendary ice cream flavours Summer Fruits Suicide and The Christmas Massacre. Mr Milkwell the undertaker, who has some very dodgy secrets in his hearse, and Campbell Milkwell, the undertaker's son, who begins to uncover the true dark heart of the town's mystery. Something very strange is up in Larkin Mills..
