'Sitting Duck' is a comic novel: the journal of Martin Mallard: middle-aged, divorced and uptight, but determined to bring a little adventure into his life. He’s signed up with Target Holidays for a group tour of Pootapuri, an obscure island in the Bay of Bengal. The ill-assorted group turns into a hornets' nest, and, worse, it gradually dawns on him that someone has got it in for him. Someone homicidal…
Within his journal's pages lie the clues to his eventual murder. It's been so generous of the murderer to share the journal with us - and belatedly to fulfil Martin's own literary ambitions.
