Stoke-On-Trent. What it lacks in grandeur, awe-inspiring scenery, breathtaking culture and complex enticing history, it makes up for in factories and dog-shit all over the pavements. But the Union of Crime-fighters Heroes and Allied Trades, headed by the magnanimous Captain Rightwing, has decided to clean up this city. What can go wrong when your home is protected by hordes of bemuscled warriors in cloaks and tight blue lycra? The crime rates are dropping, the wealth is rising… but something is missing, and worst of all nobody is sure what it is. Now it falls upon Cold Turkey, shamed private detective and gentleman of leisure to save the day. Dogged by Police Chief Albert Kraken, hunted by New-Age hitmen and largely hindered by a veritable ensemble of well-meaning allies, talking heads and the mysterious fey-underworld, Cold Turkey will be tested to the very limits of his cognitive ability… and all this before 11 a.m. on a Thursday.
