The Mad Dog Café

The Mad Dog Café welcomes you for lunch, dinner, and live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Rustic lodging is also available for those who wish to over-indulge.Three of the original characters from Going out in the Midday Sun have now combined their talents to open the Mad Dog Café on the Southern French coast.Joined by new staff, friends, lovers and family they pit their wits against bureaucracy, increasingly bizarre weather and life-changing surprises to make their venture a success.Several months after the opening of their restaurant, the team learns that the Mad Dog Café is built on sacred ground, and will become a place of pilgrimage when the time of The End of the World takes place – 21.12.2013.The heralded date of The End arrives with a world press onslaught, and passes with nothing but a few hangovers. But it seems as if the date may have been wrong … Set in France, with forays into London, Scotland and Las Vegas, the Mad Dog Café is the third part of a trilogy spanning twenty years in which the heroes are challenged with the everyday: the joys and dramas of their new venture as well as stalkers, near death experiences, and quite possibly, the end of the world.An Amazon reviewThe third book carries on from where the second book left off, with the opening of the Mad Dog Cafe…The plot gets a lot darker as the story moves through the current day into the near future, and challenges the characters to some really unforeseen situations.The characters are beautifully described. I find myself fascinated more and more by Jasper, and Freddy who has a magnificent transformation of character. The setting for the third book is beautifully detailed and comes alive as the plot unfolds in France, and surprisingly in Las Vegas.All in all a completely compelling read that I literally couldn't put down, and a fabulous conclusion to the weaving plot of the trilogy.
