The Tiny Arms of Seigfried Velodrome

Carl Brah

Brah’s latest historical offering tells of the discovery of a set of miniature pistols in the Seigfried Farnon memorial velodrome in Thirsk. Brah’s greatest creation, the historio-physicist, Nigel Lahst, discovers they belonged to none other than the legendary pirate, Blue Peter. Does his ghost still haunt the wheels of anyone who dares ride their bicycle round and round a slopy oval? Two deaths, a series of broken chains and a load of dubloons lead the way to the truth...

“Believe me, I never get into bed without a Brah. Hello.” Mark Lawson, Front Row, Gaumont Cinema, Stepney

Mitchell and Webb’s Road Trip
