Blotto, Twinks and the Maharajah’s Jewel

Despite present times, we’ve every reason to view 2021 with optimism – with the global vaccine available now for this wretched virus, the world may start to open up again. I’m excited by the thought of moving more than five kilometres from my house and feel overwhelmed by the thought of returning to the office and seeing my lovely Crime Vault colleagues in the flesh again. Happy times!

So in this spirit of new-found optimism I don’t want to concentrate on dark and terrible deeds but would rather recommend a jolly good laugh instead. And what is there not to love about national treasure Simon Brett’s latest offering, Blotto, Twinks and the Maharajah’s Jewel, where the glamorous twins journey to India, one to play a few games of cricket and the other to bag herself a prince for a husband . . . yet both becoming embroiled in the theft of a very large diamond which adorns the turban of the Maharajah of Koorbleimee (say it out loud and you’ll get it!).

So – to kick-start the new year in good form, give Blotto and Twinks a go as frankly, after the year we have just had, we could all do with a damn good laugh!
