"MYSTERY AND MORAL DILEMMA IN 21st CENTURY WESSEX"

"A PRESENT-DAY DORSET STORY OF MYSTERY, ROMANCE AND A MINIBUS"

Although this story was the first extended piece of writing I completed since I retired from teaching, a revised version of it became my second published book in 2016, after Shillingstone Station. The development of Bailing Out from a novella in an experimental form to a more orthodox novel is covered in the Other Writings page.

To those of you who have read the whole book, the following appendix will make some sense.

To those still to finish the story, please delay clicking the link to the appendix until later as it includes spoilers.
