Montagu Sylver - a descendant of the famous outlaw, Sylver - is a famous weasel detective, intent on solving mysteries. Can he ferret out the truth when he learns that the anarchist Spindrick plans to blow everyone to smithereens with a fiendish bomb? Or find a lemming prince who vanishes almost as soon as he sets paw on Welkin soil?

From rat-controlled sewers, to the fog-shrouded docks and a banner-strewn battlefront in the north, Monty is soon on the trail, aided and abetted by his trusty weasel companions. But time is running out - especially when the corrupt Sheriff Falshed trumps up a charge against Monty and he is suddenly a fugitive from the law...

Set in a gloriously witty semi-Victorian world, GASLIGHT GEEZERS is a fast and furious animal fantasy tale that begins a new cycle of adventures for the weasels of Welkin.
