AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Every woman wants to be wanted but just not by the entire Metropolitan police force. Maddy Wolfe's first day out with her newborn takes a Kafkaesque turn when she's wrongfully arrested in Harrods for shoplifting. The only person she can turn to is her hot-to-trot ex-lover Alex. Will he prove himself to be as useful as a solar powered vibrator on a rainy day? (Source: Trove)

Notes

  • Dedication: To Georgie - with love, Calpol and disposable nappies.
  • Epigraph: Redwood Says Single Mums Should Have Babies Adopted. Tory MP John Redwood sparked fury last night by telling single mums: ' If you can't afford to feed your kids - give them them up for adoption.' The Conservative leadership challenger said, 'Maybe the girl should consider letting a couple adopt her child to provide the home the baby needs.' 'News of the World', 13 August 1995.
