Set in late 1980s industrial Britain. Arthur Bilt, Brewer and Head Brewer, has toiled for his entire adult life within the labyrinthine decrepitude of the City Brewery in London. For the best part of half a century he has given it his best. The City Brewery used to be independent, but it is now owned by a sprawling hotel and leisure conglomerate with tentacles in every corner of the globe. That in its turn has been swallowed by a teetering, globalised, financial mega structure of epic proportion. Deep in the bowels of the brewery, vengeful, dark forces are at work - a monstrous seeping presence has arrived which threatens to engulf and ruin the entire shambolic imperium. Can Bilt, aided by his clever but industrially challenged assistant, rescue the situation from the brink of Apocalypse? Can they keep their cool against the shadowy forces ranged against them? What are the dark and sinister secrets encoded within Miss Millipond's archive? Can Crasker keep them all employed for long enough to emerge triumphant, or at least reach retirement age? Can senior managers re-apportion blame fast enough to retain their suits? Will Sir Richard's great career ever attain the explosive climax demanded by his soaring ambitions? Bilt decides upon a final assault of desperate proportion but it could all go horribly wrong.

About MR J M Lee

J M (John) Lee. Born Leicester, England. Educated in Leicester and briefly at the University of Wales. He lived for a short period in the North of England, followed by a spell as a radio officer in the Merchant Navy and afterwards a long career in telecommunications, mainly working in large, city telephone exchanges. He has lived for a large part of his later life in Nottinghamshire, England, and spent a good deal of time researching local history there. This has resulted in a series of local histories in the Nottinghamshire area, most of which are published by Amazon as ebooks. There is also a novel, 'The Bombay Rifleman's Chest', which is a somewhat offbeat but, hopefully, amusing tale from the largely bygone world of 1980s industrial Britain.
