The story from which this book takes its title sees a young man in a London bar enjoying a last drink before setting off home, when a young woman passes by, dropping her handbag as she does so. The retrieval of the bag and the subsequent brief relationship leads the man into life-changing circumstances.

The remaining stories all follow a similar line, with an unusual twist in the tale.

Deric Shaw, who lives in Cheshire with his wife, spent the majority of his professional career as a company secretary and accountant. Realising that on retirement he would have an additional eight hours a day to fill he turned his hand to writing mystery stories mainly self-published. He has been writing in this vein for almost 20 years and now seeks approval from a wider audience.

    My favourite story was definitely The Queen of Hearts with its sweetness and unrequited love. Titanic Revisited and Relative Disclosure were a close second.
