Borzois & Bevuardos
(or 'Kiss That Steak Slice Goodbye')
Life isn’t easy for Archipelago Smith. He’s struggling through a
degree course at a lower-tier British university, in a country
between governments and with few prospects, trying to hold down
a part-time job teaching local children about money.
Now his good friend Jim has gone missing and so, with little ability
or intelligence, Archie decides to investigate. His quest will take in
a rogue pet psychologist, conspiracies on a grand scale, the threat
of a nationwide badger cull and much illegal activity, not all of it
concerning Smith himself.
Enlisting his loser / over-achiever flatmates, the campus femme
fatale, a local Community Support Officer, one recently-liberated
Russian wolfhound and many, many beers, Archipelago goes in
search of the truth.
A campus-set detective spoof that morphs into perilous screwball territory, Borzois and
Bevuardos (or ‘Kiss That Steak Slice Goodbye’) is a comic mystery for a generation that knows
it can't make any real difference so decides to go and get stoned instead.
