The Gingerbreadman: Psychopath, murderer, and biscuit is loose in the streets of Reading. He and Mary Mary have been reassigned due to falling levels of nursery crime. That is, until a chance encounter during the Armitage Shanks literary awards at the oddly familiar Deja-Vu Club lead Jack and Mary on the hunt for missing journalist Henrietta 'Goldilocks' Hatchett. She had been about to break a story involving unexplained explosions in Herefordshire, Pasadena and the Nullabor Plain; The last witnesses to see her alive were The Three Bears, comfortably living out a life of rural solitude. But all is not what it seems. Was Goldy's death in the nearby 1st World War themepark of Sommeworld a freak accident? But there's more. What does a missing scientist with a terrifying discovery in subatomic physics, a secret weapon of devastating power, a reclusive industrialist known only as the Quangle Wangle and Colonel Danvers of the National Security all have in common?
