Dance and Co: Detectives -- Mike, Jim and Birdie - on the trail again despite all that Detective Sergeant Manny Gribbon can do to bring that amateur organisation to an end.

Because although Mike saw Aldoise Mendoza killed in a smash upon the Motorway - well, things are not always what they seem when financiers with Mendoza's millions are behind them.

And Birdie was hungry . . .
