Can I take both the Capstick books please?
Have read all of Capstick's books - you will enjoy them.
The man could write but there was always a suggestion that he never left camp nor strayed far from his typewriter but gleaned his stories from those who returned from the day's hunt.
Well, if it's true it was a great formula.

I knew some police officers like that!
